Tiger Shark Packery Channel 3  After nearly 3.5 hours of reeling, a 12 foot tiger shark was finally caught by Wayne Wimer, South of the Packery Channel, on South Padre Island near Corpus Christi, Texas.

Large Tiger sharks are rarely seen in and captured in Texas, and after taking pictures and placing a tracker on this huge tiger shark, this magnificent shark was released back into the Texas surf unharmed. The shark was tagged by the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies, and while Tiger Sharks in Texas are one of the largest sharks found in the Texas surf, they are also considered an endangered species. Rarely do Tiger Sharks make it this far North in Texas, but as we always say, the odds of you coming into contact with a shark while surfing in Texas is very low. Check out the video and more pictures below.
