Jimbo Fisher had the catch of the day this off-season -- but it wasn’t a five-star recruit for the Seminoles. The Florida State head coach and his family caught a huge shark while on a fishing trip this week.

At the height of the summer, the Division I football recruiting process is difficult for both coaches and prospects. But this year the NCAA implemented a recruiting dead period between late June and early July, in which FBS programs cannot contact recruits.
Some coaches are using the dead period for vacation time such as Fisher and his family. Hopefully for Florida State, Fisher can continue to land some big catches once recruiting resumes, so he can restock a roster that lost seven players to the 2014 NFL draft.
Judging by the size of that shark, maybe Jimbo should enlist the help of the whole Fisher family to land some big-time recruits for the reigning BCS champions.
