Love it when a plan comes together. Going to take a nice mako in the near future for the same purpose. Only question I have is how did you get such a nice fish in 30 min on 40lb test? That is another accomplishment.

Using the boat to tire him and Max pressure. You need an experienced guy at the wheel and on the rod to be successful. And luck judging by the damaged hook

The picture does not do the 240 pound t-shark any justice, and guessing you've caught plenty of 240's before, great job!

Sticking a T that green takes balls and a bigger gaff. I like to let them get tired before I stick them but then again I am only 5'7" and 140 so I have to wait for my opportunity. :) Enjoy the meat.

NO WAY. We worked him good. I will never gaff a green fish.way too dangerous. flying gaff helped us alot. Once we stuck him he ran out of gas. Using the boat to FIGHT a big fish really works. I landed a 220 lb one in my 12 ft gregor few years ago. That was some intense 1/2 hour, though. Once you experience a fish that big getting completely airborne you get HOOKED!

Nice Tchark.

We always set the fish up, up swell from the boat. Make him fight the boat and the current. This wears them out pretty quickly and they are much easier to dispatch at boat side.

That's some good eating right there.
