With two great white shark sightings off Chatham and others sighted around Cape Cod in the last week, a man made news in Nantucket for wrestling a 7-foot sand shark on Sconset beach.
It took 45 minutes for Elliot Sudal to wrestle the shark to shore. Sudal, a 24-year-old who moved to Massachusetts from Florida, said he had been a fisherman his whole life and was catching bluefish and bass before the sand shark took the bait. He and his friends snapped some photos, then pushed the shark back out into the water.
Sudal said he suspected a shark presence when some of the fish he reeled in showed signs of bite marks.
