The crew of a fishing boat accidentally caught and released a great white shark off the coast of Ocean City last weekend.
 
Dustin Lorah, captain of the Over-Board, tells local media that the shark was caught Saturday about 11 miles off the coast.
 
The crew estimated the shark to be about 7 feet long and 150 pounds in weight, and probably not fully grown.

 
Last summer, the great white shark Mary Lee, spotted along the East Coast, became an Internet sensation, spawning its own fake Twitter account.
