Two fishermen off the shores of Manasquan, New Jersey took home a 300-pound, 8-foot long shark after it jumped into their boat.

The shark started gobbling anything in its path including a broomstick, cushions and part of the boat.

The fishermen say it jumped several times before they could hook it. They lashed it to the bow and it died about two hours later.
