I just showed this to my 15 year old son with no warning or info ahead of time.....watching watching....getting bored, then he yells "shit! what the...." He cut himself off before the next word but I know where he was going and I agree. LMAO.....great video. Thanks for sharing
Did the same with my crew at work. All of them talking shit until the first jump. Then they were in awe. Awesome video.
I replayed this 10 times. Sick video.
What area were you in ?
Wow so gnarly. Glad you guys are okay and thanks for sharing.
Exactly what he said!
Watch how quick that shark closes the distance from the first jump to the second! Unbelievably fast!!!
The unknown fisherman
I've killed many a Mako as they are delicious table fare. That fish was a beast. I would guestimate 500 easy. Look how tall/long it is on the second and third jump using the close proximity of the boat.
Yeah, me too Max! I'm not above it, just don't target them anymore. It was certainly thick! My best was around 200.
HAHAHAHA......that was awesome!
Dude your footage is going viral. It has like 200k+ views on Facebook. It's on pages that have nothing to do with fishing
my goal for next year is to put one over 500 in the yak.
Haha awesome !!
I like it!
When a Mako that big jumps IN the boat it saves a lot of time and effort trying to gaff it (if you wanted to keep him that is), BUT the problem is... now you are probably no longer IN the boat with it! You better hope the Mako knows how to drive AND is willing to come back and pick you up before you get hypothermia -- From my experience, however, they're too pissed and will let someone else get you.
Can you imagine diving in the salon and closing the door, cracking to peek out once the thrashing/smashing haults?
SCARED THE SHIT OUT OF ME, AND I AM SITTING IN THE FAMILY ROOM.
They sure can jump. This was a 125 pounder hooked.
But that's a thresher.... It's cool when they tailwalk. Had one of those jump and land on the back of my yak. Lol.
I've watched it at least 20 times. This happen once on my buddy's boat but no video proof. Thanks for the post.
