Catch of the Week: It's Shark Week for 10-year-old

Caleb Smith of Illinois is going home with a prized memory.

Anglers: 10-year-old Caleb Smith from La Grange Park Illinois

Fish: Blacktip Shark. The family also caught grouper, snapper and spanish mackerel fishing with Capt Larry McGuire Show Me The Fish Charters while on vacation at the Tortuga Inn on Beautiful Anna Maria Island.

Bait: Live Grunt

Where: Offshore of Anna Maria Island in waters of about 45 feet.

MORE:  All Caleb wanted was to catch a blacktip shark after watching his dad catch one a few days before. Caleb really believed he would catch one much larger than his dad's and he did. Posing with the catch, left to right, are Susan Smith, Caleb, Emily Smith, Ty Smith and Chris Smith on the back.

Guide: Capt Larry McGuire of Show Me The Fish Charters, operating out of Bradenton Beach Marina, can be reached at 941-720-6475. The family was on vacation at the Tortuga Inn on Beautiful Anna Maria Island.
