San Antonio resident Joe Guerrero had the catch of his life when he and his family went fishing at the Padre Island National Seashore during Father’s Day weekend. 

Guerrero, 38, reeled in a 12-foot hammerhead shark with his two children and wife by his side. 

It took Guerrero an hour and a half to bring the sea creature onto the beach.

Dan and Austin Kendrick from Seguin helped Guerrero carry the shark onto shore. 

Guerrero and his family took pictures with the shark before releasing it back into the ocean. 

San Antonio resident Joe Guerrero is all smiles after catching a 12-foot hammerhead shark during Father's Day weekend.
