Beautiful mako, tasty to.
What did he land him on, what gear.

Quite a few get caught tuna fishin, I've never hooked into or seen one myself. Plenty of other stuff, just not one of those. Congrats to him

Sweet! I've only had shark meat once, but it was delicious. I see what you're doing there with that reverse psychology. Telling him that's his fish of a lifetime, so he'll want to prove you wrong. And of course, you'll need to tag along with him to see! Smart thinking there dad.

I bet that put the quite on all arguments about who won the big fish pot.

Seriously, we need more details.

You don't usually hook a 500 pound shark by accident

AND LAND IT.

Congrats to your son.

Thats a beaut Clark

Congrats. Back in the 70's I hooked a mako on the scat cat and got it to the side of the boat and the deck hands cut my line and wouldn't bring it on board Glad they let him land it.

I wasn't on the boat, but my understanding is the captain had everyone reel up. Several were not happy to give up and hour and 15 mins of drop lining. But the crew wasn't NOT going to get this one in. They were anchored. Went fully around the boat six times, under the anchor chain each time around.

I was hooked up on a decent mako one time. He came out of the water and I forgot what I was doing. I let too much slack get in the line and he tail wrapped the line.

Hardly ever hear about a Mako being caught off of Port A. Usually the big fish caught off of Port A. are hammer heads, black tips, occasional tiger. Don't remember the last time I heard of a mako being caught off of Port A.

Trey, please send my congrats to Nathan. That's one heck of a fish!



And I've been on that catamaran 1 time. Caught more snapper than anyone else on the boat. But didn't catch the biggest . It was an employer sponsored outing. We leased out the boat for a 12 hour trip.
