HILTON HEAD, S.C. (WTVD) -- A 1,400-pound tiger shark made its encore appearance off the coast of Hilton Head Island this week.

The shark was caught for the second time by the same fisherman, WSOC reports. Chip Michalove, owner of Outcast Sport Fishing, told WSOC that he caught "Chessie" on Wednesday about a half-mile off the beach.

Michalove posted the pictures to his business' Facebook page.

Michalove told WSOC Chessie might be pregnant, because she is much wider than last year.
