Albany fisherman Brendan Hilder caught a 4-metre tiger shark with a hand line fishing off the beach yesterday morning, reported the Albany Advertiser.

ICYMI: Angler lands 4m shark with handline.

Mr Hilder told the Albany Advertiser the big catch was a highlight of his time fishing, but it left him "absolutely knackered".

"A 4m shark has a fair bit of pull on it," he said. "It burnt me out. I couldn't even hold my handle, I was that buggered."

Videos were taken of Mr Hilder battling the shark...
