Damn. That is one big ass mother fucker. Unofficially weighing in at 1,323.5 pounds and measuring 12 ft long and 8 ft around. This monster of a killing machine was caught off the coast of southern California by Jason Johnston of Mesquite, Texas. Johnston claims that the battle ensued for over 2 hours before he was able to get the thing on the boat, took out over a quarter mile of line, and was jumping “20 ft out of the water”. We all know how fishermen like to tell stories, but given the size of this fucker I wouldn’t doubt any of that at all. I’ve caught sharks before, no where near the size of this one, but they put up one hell of a fight and take a long ass time to reel in. The previous World Record for a Mako shark was 1,221 pounds, so if the unofficial weigh in turns out to be true, then this will blow that record out of the water. Pun intended.
