Shark Tail

whoa, nellie. i think we need a bigger boat...

this catch took place about a month ago and just hit the Bojon inbox the other day, courtesy of judge HiRew:

    Jaws Shark Caught in Yarmouth Nova Scotia
    Date: Tue, 26 Oct 2004 22:27:58 -0400


    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's 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.

    The Shark weighed in at 1035 LBS.
