  1. #1

    Default 6hr battle

    Went out saturday looking for MR T. Jigs in 6:55 am . 7:05 hook up . Large shark jumps out of the water but didn't get a good look. thought cool mouth hooked thresher. After about 3 hrs got a look its about a 400# mako hooked in the pectoral fin . 3 more hours go by had her to boat a couple times still hot it attacks the boat bitting scratch in the gell coat into the glass. 6 hrs over 7 miles from were we started the shark won . Spectra broke. Had it on tiagra 50 , 150# spectra to 80# mono. I don't ever care to see a mako that big that close to my boat again lol.

    Hooking anything of size in the pectoral just sounds like worse case scenario. It's gotta be even worse than tail hooking I would think. Well on the good side, at least you saw it, so no mystery!

    That was your warm up for a big swordfish that get the upper hand during the battle.

    I hooked a hammerhead like that a few years ago. Waisted most of the afternoon on that fish.
