Shane Sanders and crew caught a 221kg mako shark off Portland today, on 24kg line.  They also tagged and released one estimated at 75kg earlier in the day.

Here are some photos of the huge mako that Cameron Ordner left swimming out at the shelf off Port Fairy yesterday.  I’m pretty sure that classic line from the movie Jaws would have been quoted at some point: “We’re gonna need a bigger boat…”.  It took another run after the spool got emptied to the point below, at which point they needed to chase it in the boat rather than take photos!  They also caught and released a “seal shark” off the bottom in 600m.901721_717203628291583_1741516586_o 902536_717203591624920_1136041501_o 1417498_717203624958250_840084386_o 1417545_717203568291589_1236396225_o 1498056_717203534958259_810030288_o 1501016_717203508291595_655491519_o 1502750_717203661624913_1807562389_o

Kev McLoughlin and crew landed this 94kg mako shark off Port Fairy in 55m yesterday.  Cameron Ordner had to part company with a mako after 3 hours because it was simply too big.
