On Sunday July 30 anglers aboard the private sportfishing boat San Mateo out of Dana Point got a rare treat. while fishing for yellowtail and dorado on a kelp paddy several miles from the harbor they hooked up to this large 400-pound mako shark , the anglers were thrilled to watch this huge Mako Shark do somersaults and acrobatic moves all around the boat !

Capt. Bo Daniel said he was shocked at the sheer size of the shark and he was thankful when it broke off. What a fishing tale these anglers will remember for a lifetime charter master Ron Smith told the OC Register. The mako shark was believed to be at least 400 pounds.
