I hope you told that shark good job and to keep up the good work! Go get some more! Sometimes I can't even slow troll around there because the seals steal all my bait... Then again, sometimes guys on long range trips can't even catch fish because the sharks eat every fish they hook. haha

Title should be "Mako eats boat" haha. Must have been defending his catch or the electricity in the water rubbed him the wrong way.

Love it!!!! Prime reason why I am not a fan of killing sharks! they do their part to keep the sea lion population in check... apparently we need more sharks.... lots of 'em...

Makes me recall those dumb asses in the past that have caught and killed a 7-800lb mako just for the picture.
Oh. Yeah. That's right, after the carcass sits in their driveway all day they, "donate it to a food bank".
Long live these seal killers.

Natural predation just like it's supposed to be. As already mentioned, we need more of those big guys off our coast to get the sea lions in check. Unfortunately, other than some guys doing "Night OPS" along the coast, the man in the gray suit is all we got to help out.

Cool vid - thanks for posting!

I see you've been doing a great job training the boy to be a fisherman - "how big is that thing? 15'??" ROTFLMAO!!

It is the galvanic aurora put out by the boat that makes the shark want to bite it.

That's a big girl right there. Possibly the same one that tried to eat a hooked yellowtail from under my boat near the Vs last year. Biggest shark I have ever seen.

Dad - "Do you want to hook 'em"
Son - "No - Hook Him?????"

Smart boy! What you gonna do with 800 pounds of pissed off dinosaur anyway?

Great video, I love it!

Rad video bro!! I felt like I was there, especially when it looked like the tax man was going to take a chunk out of your boat. I think I jumped back from my phone screen. Glad to see the youngster wearing his pfd. Good for the young man to see the the higher end of the food chain... "that's his intestines".
