USA: mako shark of over 550 lb caught from the shore

Surf fishing angler Will Smith was fishing for sharks past midnight on a Florida beach  when his reel started singing as the line started racing out to indicate a huge shark.
 Will fought the huge fish for around 45 minute that resulted in a prized great mako catch.

He  beached a behemoth mako shark measuring 10 feet, 8 inches in length with a sixty inch girth.

According to some weight estimate formulas, a mako measuring 10 feet to the fork of the tail with a 60 inch girth would weigh 550 pounds.

As for the exact location where he landed the huge shark will remain a big secret.

Catching sharks from the beach at night is a popular fishing sport in Florida.
