Just remember if your spearing smaller makos grandpa mako might like to pay you a visit.

Shark catch in Yarmouth Nova Scotia
(The place where Dean Randazzo won the Red Bull Ice Break contest earlier this year)
Did you all see this? This Mako was hooked in the mouth, only fought slightly for 15 minutes, came up along side of the boat to have a look, long enough for one of the crew to put a rope around its tail !!!

That's when the s**t hit the fan!!

The Shark took off towing the 42 foot fishing boat backwards through the water at about 7 Knots. Just like in JAWS. The boat was taking on water, the Shark would jump completely out of the water at times.

This went on for an hour before the Shark actually drowned.
He weighed in at 1035 LBS

Mako's are the closest thing to Marlin where I come from and a dam site better eating as far as I'm concerned and as the continental shelf is beyond reach by all exept Ships hopefully I'll never encounter a beast such as that in my 16ft sardine tin :D
