Default Kiddo Caught a Good One

Last Saturday my son Nathan landed the fish of a lifetime. Largest fish ever brought in on the Scat Cat (Port A).
502 pound Mako. 10' 6" long. Happy for him. This kid fishes more than any youngster I've ever known. If it's wet, he'll throw a bait in it. Not real sure he'll top this fishing every day the rest of his life.

I'm sure we're about to be crucified by the "release only" shark crowd. So be it. I've got plenty tough skin.

300 pounds of the whitest fish meat I've seen.

Great catch. He can beat it though. Tell him to start saving money for a bigger shark or a blue fin tuna out of PEI. Or a big hammerhead out of Florida.

How long did it take him to reel in?

And when catching a shark off a party boat does one have a choice? I though the deck hands killed them to play it safe versus trying to CPR.

Awesome catch and IMO the best eating shark! I bet he had deck hands scrambling all over the deck choking on their cigs trying to get that beast in . I saw the boat coming in Sat, we were fishing inside north jetty. Were y’all hanging out at FW watching boats come in Friday afternoon by chance?

Your son can be proud of that one. I bet it put on quite the show and fight.

Don't tell him he can't get something bigger out of the oceans. You never know what you can catch in those waters. He is a fisherman for life.
