The post, hashtagged "#BigTeethBigTimes," was shared hundreds of times on the social media site, with commenters pointing out the human-like qualities of the fish's teeth.

"It's a very good fight when you're fighting on the line, it's a really good catch, and it tastes very good," Martin told McClatchy News.

Sheepshead fish are known for their teeth, which allow them to eat omnivorous diets. They typically are found in coastal areas, including North Carolina.
