RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - An eight-foot shark was caught in the Potomac River.

Willey Dean caught the shark Tuesday in St. Mary's County, Maryland.

He says it wasn't easy pulling the big guy in and that it was quite a fight. Willey thinks it's a bull shark.

Right now, the fish is in the freezer. Willey says he may mount the head on his wall.
