Near-record 609 lb. shark caught off Mass. coast

(Continued)

NEWBURYPORT, Mass. —

"It was pretty close to the state record," Hogg said.

The state record is 630 pounds for a thresher shark caught off Martha's Vineyard in July 2011. Hogg speculated that the Cloutiers' shark had a chance at breaking that record, but a delay in weighing it likely shrunk its weight somewhat.

The shark meat wasn't wasted, Bob Cloutier said.

"It's great to eat," he said. "I steaked it up and gave it to everyone I know, and a lot of people I don't."
