    My guess is 1300+ pounds. Look at the diameter of the tail before the fork. That's always a way of determining the size of a fish. When they get fat like the one in the picture, it's a very mature fish.

    jared,

    The one i am holding is a BABY.


    That thing is huge you can see the harpoons in the background. I am with mrbill i think 1200 plus.

    The diameter of a tail of a sword is mind boggling. If you chop the head and tail of a sword and a mako the body is the same.

    Here is the story .

    "Was harpooned on the Georges Bank in the mid 1980's.
    Boat was the Irene+Alton, skipper Bernard Raynes, fishing out of Owls Head, Maine.The guy behind fish is Paul Molyneaux, author of "The Doryman's Reflection". "
