High school baseball players hook great white shark off Fla. (VIDEO)

WASHINGTON – High school baseball players are used to making a whole different kind of catch.

WSVN reports members of a high school baseball team from Georgia went charter fishing Tuesday off of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to kill some time.

Their catches: mackerel, mahi-mahi … and a roughly 1,000-pound great white shark.

The giant fish reportedly took four teens about two hours to reel in before it was released.

Check out the video below to see the catch:
