Mako onboard a fishing boat!

I don’t know what to mako of this? This past August in Monhegan, Maine  the crew and guests of the charter fishing boat Lady Anne caught and released two blue sharks one day late last month when they hooked another shark … and realized it was a mako.

They are going to need a bigger boat

As they watched the shark’s “acrobatics” from the boat, the 7-foot-long shark suddenly leaped onto the deck of the Lady Anne.

The good news is neither the shark nor any people were injured as they measured and tagged the mako and it headed back into the sea, according to Chris Kingsbury, who recorded the video.

He says it was a “once in a lifetime experience”, let’s hope.

August 27, 2022: Midcoast Maine: On board FV Lady Anne … this happened. A lovely day shark fishing with two beautiful blue sharks tagged and released when a big mako took the bait. Everyone was enjoying the acrobatics of the mako when …. (Watch video clip). A once-in-a-lifetime experience! Thankfully, no one on board was injured! Astonishingly, the mako was measured, tagged, nudged toward the transom door and released. Dave and Cameron did an incredible job keeping people (and the mako) safe. We want to acknowledge Chris Kingsbury and his band of boys for their cool heads, assistance, and this awesome video.
