    Shark Catch in Yarmouth Nova Scotia

    not sure if this is true or not......got it on an email....

    This Mako was hooked in the mouth, only fought slightly for 15 minutes,
    came up along side of the boat to have a look, long enough for one of
    the crew to put a rope around it tail!!! That's when the s**t
    hit the fan!!

    The shark took off towing the 42 foot fishing boat backwards through the
    water at about 7 Knots. Just like in JAWS. The boat was
    taking on water, the Shark would jump completely out of the water at
    times. This went on for an hour before the Shark actually drowned.
    He weighed in at 1035 LBS.

    Aw, the poor little fish.
    He doesn't look happy.

    Would you be happy!!!

    Why would you tie a rope around a sharks tail anyway????

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    I didn't think sharks went as far North as that.
    But obviously I'm wrong... :-)

    Hey Barry are you sure its a great white? I heard it was a mako, but I agree with you it looks very much like a white.
