The mako shark is one of my all time favorite sharks. It looks mean, its super fast, and it has been known to jump 20 feet into the air when hooked. They aren’t the biggest shark, but they sure act like there are. Many people call them the bully of the ocean!
The current IGFA world record mako is 1221 pounds, but a 1324 pound and 1530 pound mako have also been caught that do not qualify as world records according the the IGFA rules.
Caught off Chatham Massachusetts, USA on July 21, 2001 by Luke Sweeney.
