    Florida anglers who had hoped to avoid publicity after catching a giant mako shark from the beach last week might have succeeded had they not stopped for gas on the way home–with the enormous predator spilling from the bed of their pickup truck.


    News spread not long after West Calhoun, a passerby, sent a photo of the shark to the Pensacola News-Journal. The News Journal posted the image on its Facebook page, with no details, and the peculiar image was so widely shared and discussed that the newspaper tracked down one of the anglers and, a day later, reported that the catch could set a world record for shore-based fishing.



    Cousins Earnie and Joey Polk hooked the shortfin mako in the dark morning hours, on a Gulf Coast beach near Navarre. The apex predator, reeled in with heavy tackle after an hour-long struggle, weighed 805 pounds and measured 11 feet.


    “That’s probably the best fish we ever caught,†Earnie Polk said. “You’ll spend many, many hours to catch a fish of that caliber, or a fish of that size.â€

    If you eat shark in a restaurant there's a good chance it is a mako shark. Now we can wait and see all of the PETA faggots demonizing these guys for killing a beautiful creature of the sea.
