Great fish but IMHO ... All I can say is what a shame to have a warrior of a Mako like that be hooked and killed especially with a spinning reel and a trebel hook. They basically hooked it and followed it around until they switched boats and gaffed it 3 hours later.

They were fishing 40lb test so there is no way they could put any pressure on a fish of that size therefore it had zero clue it was hooked. I wish they could have felt the real power of a beast like that. They are the meanest damn fish in the ocean rivaled only by a big sword or a thresher

Great fish, my hats off to them for having the balls to do it in a 17ft boat
