From the NY Daily News:
Fisherman Jason Kresse used no bait to make the catch of a lifetime: An 8-foot mako shark that simply jumped into the back of his boat.
Kresse, of Freeport, Texas, was hoping to land some red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico when he set out early Monday.
He and two crew members were spreading chum on the water when they suddenly attracted a much bigger fish: The 375-pound shark.
"All of a sudden something hit the side of the boat," Kresse recounted. "He ends up landing on the back of the boat."
The shark began thrashing there, with Kresse and the crew unable to get the fish back into the gulf. Hours later, after damaging the boat, the shark finally died.
Once back at shore, Kresse needed a forklift to get the trophy fish off his boat. It's currently on display at a seafood business in his town, but Kresse intends to permanently memorialize his catch.
"I'm going to get a mount of it," said Kresse. "A fish jumping in your boat, 400 pounds, that's unbelievable."
Dude, this is how fucked up the water in the Gulf is from that BP shit. Sharks are just jumping into fucking boats because chilling in a boat and dying is better than lurking in a bunch of oil. These dudes actually made fishing lazier. Just drink some brews, change your shorts and watch the huge fucking Mako slither on your boat for a couple hours til it dies. Easy squeezey.
|Yeah tell me he didn't shit his pants|
