PONCE INLET, Fla. - A 12-year-old girl reeled in what could be a world record-setting catch along the Volusia County coast.

Taylor Shenk caught a 26-pound red snapper south of Ponce Inlet last week.

Shenk and her father, Corey, shared the prize on Facebook.

The two hope to have it certified as the world record for a red snapper catch in the Junior Female Division.  They will receive the confirmation in about two months.
