True Fish Story Here
July 25th, 2012
So if I read the story right, they’re talking about reverence for the fishing of these animals? The poor thing has a huge hook in it’s mouth, it’s jumping out of the water because it’s scared shitless and is trying to dislodge it.
Yeah, I call that reverence, they can suck sustainability.
Catch and release. That’s an awesome fish. I believe the fastest shark. Cuz to a white.
I’d seen a lot of those when I was growing up. Once, on a fishing boat where they pulled one up and laid it on the deck, they put a mop in it’s mouth so it had something to chew on. One of the guys told me that they may look dead even when they weren’t and were known to snap at things nearby: chairs, rods, legs, etc. Hence the mop. They taste great!
The mako tastes great, not the mop.
Hippie dude, What Ocean? Grew up in SoCal. My dad was like the Old Man and The Sea. Saw a few, Caught a Hammer Head, that was a trip.
Mrs Compton – I beg to differ. “The poor thing has a huge hook in it’s mouth, it’s jumping out of the water because it’s scared shitless and is trying to dislodge it.”
Have you ever gone shark-fishing? I have. Over two hundred times. I’ve caught dozens of Makos. And they were all caught legally. Makos are not endangered or protected. Regular size limits, bag limits apply to catching these fish.
And what “huge hook” are you talking about? The fishermen in this clip were using spinning rods, not the big-game standup gear I would normally use.
One more thing – if you knew mako behavior you’d a) know that makos aren’t “scared” of one damn thing on this Earth and b) they attack their prey from underneath – THAT’S WHY THEY JUMP OUT OF THE WATER. That hook didnt hurt that shark – it pissed her off (makos that big and fat are always females).
I love how Enviros attack hunters and especially fishermen, saying the poor wittle fishie feels pain fwum dat awful awful hook. Lady, there is no way that God created His fish to feel pain every time they ate a freakin’ meal. What do you think fish eat all day? They eat sharp, spiny objects – i.e. OTHER FISH!
p.s. you must be drinking too much fluoridated water
Ripper, Where’s your water?
OMFG! I almost pissed myself. JFC! good grief…
eternal cracker p
Huh… I thought it was flipping out of the water because it wanted to see the boat that has a large screen projecting IOTW.
That was cool footage! I don’t like sharks. They’re the reason why I feel like a giant top water plug when I’m surfing.
Even Steven, I feel the same way, thats why when swimming in salt water I always have a big ass treble hook hanging out my butt.
Yo, Fonz. Jump dis shark. EEEHHH.
Boobie the Rocket Dog
Was it the Palestinian terrorist in the final few frames who kept screaming throughout, “OH MY GOD!,” as if he actually meant it?
Been to a few shark-fishing tournaments (Lake Worth, FL). Did you know that if you hang a nine-foot hammerhead by its tail all its guts will just drop out its mouth?
That was 9 jumps…idiots
Mrs. Compton….you’ve obviously never had blackened Mako steaks. nomnomnom.
south joizy, SE fla, LA and Alabammy. Caught a mako deepdropping at Pushbutton Hill once….deliberately. Did it just to shut up the know-it-alls back at the marina. It ate REAL good. I put it just above yellowfin steaks for succulence.
Genl Ripper I’m not as you call me an enviro. I just don’t see the pleasure in seeing an animal trying to get away with men whooping and hollering. If you catch it, eat it, don’t play with it.
And I’ve kept kosher the majority of my life, so no Pyle, I’ve never eaten shark, but please enjoy it when you do.
Ripper, that’s a lot a water. Do you have a sportsfisher or are you towing?
Brad, it was the Atlantic, off Long Island.
Wasn’t that Ted Barta’s old stomping grounds?
Not sure Brad. Montauk LI was where Frank Mundus hunted great whites.
If you’re interested I found this, it’s not Ted, it’s Tred. Pretty amazing story really. He quit fishing started bow hunting and eventually got his own show. Then out of the blue contracted some mysterious spinal disease and became paralyzed. He was a heck of a fisherman though, mainly Tuna. Still has his show.

Hippie Critic & Bad Brad – I met Capt Tred at the Atlantic City boat Show a few times. Great guy. Knows his shit too. Probably the most hardcore big-game fisherman I’ve ever met. I admire his can-do attitude in the face of his paralization from a spinal stroke. He used to write for Big Game Fishing Journal, the best fishing magazine out there.
I grew up in South Joizy, lived in SE FLorida for a bunch of years and now live on the Gulf coast. Used to have a center-console but sold it when the port engine shit the bed due to ethanol damage (thanks Enviro Assholes!)
Ripper, Fresh water Bass Fisherman here. Used to do the tournament routine, but got to be to much work. I still get on the water as much as I can. Nothing compares to Blue Water though.
“Genl Ripper I’m not as you call me an Enviro. I just don’t see the pleasure in seeing an animal trying to get away with men whooping and hollering. If you catch it, eat it, don’t play with it.”
You may as well be an Enviro. Have you ever heard of the phrase “the thrill of the hunt”? Whether hunting game on land or fishing at sea, it is exciting to go out in G-d’s Nature and use your skills and knowledge to catch your own dinner instead of buying some over-priced chemically-processed shrink-wrapped crap at a supermarket. Even if you dont take up hunting or fishing, maybe you should get outdoors more often.
These fishermen aren’t “playing” with or teasing or torturing that mako. They’re fighting it mano-a-mano, armed only with a fishin’ pole and some line and a hook. If they weren’t excited and didn’t have the adrenaline pumping whilst fighting that fish, I’d say somethings wrong with them.
If the professional Enviro Industry had their way, they would have us all living crammed into urban shitholes, eating Vegan Soylent-Green Tofu so that Mother Nature/ Gaiea/ Whatever could go unspoiled & untouched by the ungrateful bad humans. Some of the worlds worst fascists are Enviro Industry leaders. The founder of EDF has been quoted several times as saying that it would be a “good thing” for several billion humans to die off so that Nature could catch a break. Another example – Hitler was a vegetarian and look at how that sonofabitch turned out!
I’ll close with saying that if G-d didn’t want us to eat animals then why did He make them out of meat?
Brad & Hipster – y’all oughtta join the 100 Fathom Fishing Club. It’s a free online private fishing club dedicated to swordfishing, bottomfishing, deepdropping and fisheries regulation issues. It has a firm No Flamewars policy.
Great group of guys & gals with members from the USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Guam, Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Tahiti, Caymans, Costa Rica, Panama, Germany, Malta, Barbados….and I can’t remember the rest, dammit.
