This mako shark was hooked in the mouth off the coast of wave rich Nova Scotia, fought slightly for fifteen minutes, came up along side of the boat to have a look, which was just long enough for one of the crew to put a rope around it tail.
That’s when the shit really hit the fan.
The shark took off, towing the 42-foot fishing boat backwards through the water at about 7 knots-just like in the movie Jaws. The boat was taking on water and the shark would jump completely out of the water at times. This went on for an hour before the shark actually drowned.
The big guy weighed in at 1035lbs. Might be time to reschedule that Nova Scotia trip.
