fishing was slow on the west side for me (march 31st) but we we're catching a couple aku and shibi near V. hooked one aku, it got sharked, but it was a thresher shark, about 6ft (my best guess). when it tried to stun the aku with its tail, it ended up tail hooked. 6ft thresher tail hooked is a good fight, then, straight down from the boat, the fight got easy. and we brought in a thresher tail. our shark got sharked. i dont know what hit him on the way in, but i assume it was big, and there was a huge shadow below the boat. assuming it was a mako or something, but not sure. just wondering how common this is. i've never heard of it before. i'll post pictures of the chomped off tail as soon as i get them onto the computer.
