Shark Catch in Yarmouth Nova Scotia

This Mako was hooked in the mouth, only fought slightly for 15 minutes, came up along side of the boat to have a look, long enough for one of the crew to put a rope around it tail!!! That's when the s**t hit the fan!!
The shark took off towing the 42 foot fishing boat backwards through the water at about 7 Knots. Just like in JAWS. The boat was taking on water, the Shark would jump completely out of the water at times. This went on for an hour before the Shark actually drowned. He weighed in at 1035 LBS.

I think that I'd quit and say have a nice day if a fish was making my boat take on water because it was going the wrong way.

The scary thing about that shark was that it was a mako not a great white.
Experts estimate that the largest Great Whites, rarely seen and never captured, may reach over 7,000 lbs and 23 feet in length

http://www.wavescape.co.za/top_bar/t...shark_KZN.html

The biggest Great White ever caught was a female of 6.4 meters, which was caught off Cuba in 1945. It weighed 3312 kilos and its girth reached 4.5 meters; several trucks were needed to tow and transport it. A 10 meter specimen is also said to have been captured, but neither photo nor expert account exists, only subjective statements. The record specimen are always female, since in the sharks, females have larger measurements than males.


Heres a pick of the largest caught on hook-and-line that was 3,450 lbs, snagged in 2002 off the coast of Natal:

Ocean sunfish maybe? Many times their fins have been mistaken for sharks, and from what I hear they'll spool you quick.

They are awfully slow and sluggish. Would they take a hooked bait or lure?

Crazy Mako!! I thought we had out hands full with a 7ft 202lb Mako that we caught 12 miles SW of Nantucket. It took us almost 2 hours to boat it using a Penn 50 with stand up gear. We were also on a 23 ft Center Console.

Must have been something to land a fish like that. Makos as we all know have been known to do crazy things.....like trying to jump in your boat for one.....or come out of their "coma" and start thrasing on board

Anyway nice fish and it must have been enough to feed a small village
