Mako shark goes berserk in awesome aerial display

Two fishermen aiming to catch snapper were treated to something neither had ever seen before when a mako shark ate one of their baits and went ballistic in an awesome aerial display.

“[The bait] was in about 60 meters of water, and he grabbed it and just went berserk,” Nick Grace told NewsHub. “Before I got the Go-Pro going, it did two pretty big jumps at the boat. Luckily it didn’t come in ‘cause there wouldn’t have been room for all of us.”

Grace and his brother-in-law Todd Hughes were fishing by Castle Rock off the east coast of the Coromandel in New Zealand earlier this month when the six-foot mako showed up. It jumped at least 10 times in the video.

One of the fishermen at first thought it might be a king mackerel, but he was corrected by the other.

The mako peeled out line like a runaway train and the fishermen initially began chasing it in the boat. But they soon gave up on that idea and cut the line or pulled the hook free.

“[We realized] it wasn’t a great idea because obviously they do jump,” Grace told NewsHub.

Grace said he’s been fishing about 20 years and Hughes even longer, but this was a first for both of them.
