375-Pound Mako Shark Jumps Into Fisherman’s Boat (Video)
He, along with two crew members were dumping fish guts into the water at 3:45 am when something suddenly came crashing into their 25-foot boat. That something was a Mako shark, which landed in the back of their boat and thrashed around for several hours before finally dying.
The shark is currently on display at a Freeport seafood business, approximately 55 miles south of Houston. Jason plans to have it mounted.
As for all of you tree-huggers out there who are wondering why Jason and his crew members didn’t throw the fish back in the water and let it live, I ask you this: Would you get close to a giant Mako as it thrashes around your boat with its mouth open? There is your answer.
Here is an interview with Jason regarding his big/lucky catch.
