A shark thought to be a record breaker was caught in the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, north of Cape Cod, this past week. A 624 pound, 10 foot, male mako shark was caught by line by a 20 year old fisherman who was out tuna fishing with a family. The shark is believed to be the largest male mako shark ever caught. A 1200 pound female mako was caught in 2001. Read the details in the Boston Globe...Here.
