5-foot bull shark caught on shoreline of Crystal Beach

Many Texans may have flocked to Galveston to catch the clear, island-blue water that was spotted over the weekend, but there was another big catch they may have missed. A fisherman was just out fishing when he reeled in a 5-foot bull shark not far from the shore in Port Bolivar, Texas. 

It's important to note because of how close this big shark was to the shoreline — please be safe out there when you're swimming with your family. This one was a little too close for comfort!
