'The 17.9-foot-long (5.5-meter-long) male behemoth was found off Mexico's Guadalupe Island (map) in fall 2009.
The animal breaks the team's previous record of 16.8 feet (5.1 meters), set when they caught a female great white named Kimel. (Both records are unofficial and not maintained by a formal organization.)
The two-ton Apache put up a fight—at one point breaking free from his barbless hook, said expedition leader Chris Fischer.
"The battle with Apache was like nothing we've ever dealt with," Fischer said.
Once on board, the researchers fitted the fish with a satellite-tracking tag, took a blood sample, and released him, watching him vigorously swim away.'
