Monster Great White caught near Roxy Pro

A MONSTER 3.4m Great White shark was caught and killed just metres from surfers battling it out in the Roxy Pro quarterfinals on Wednesday.

The shark was taken on a drum line 300m off Greenmount Beach in Coolangatta on Wednesday about 2pm.

The shark is the biggest to be caught on the Gold Coast in more than seven years and the first great white to be caught in Queensland this year.

Eight female surfers including Stephanie Gilmore competed in the Roxy Pro at Snapper Point just hours before the shark was caught.

The competition finished at 9.15am and the shark was first reported about 2pm.
