Massive mako shark stuns anglers as it leaps repeatedly

By Delords - Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Alex Beck and Mark Martin may not have won the Flying Mako fishing tournament held in San Diego last weekend, but thanks to their buddy Keith Langford, they undoubtedly came away with the best fishing tale of the day, and the video to prove it. 

While competing in the annual catch and release affair, Langford captured this incredible footage of a giant mako shark leaping from the water not once, not twice, but nine times, right in front of them. Have a look in the video below.

The incredible show turned out to be a wonderful 40th birthday present for Beck, who lives in Colorado, but was in Martin's boat as part of an extended birthday weekend celebration with his buddies. 

Martin estimated the shark to be 10 feet in length, and somewhere between 500 and 800 pounds. "The best part of the video is the reverence you get watching this beautiful creature," he says. "And it's fitting because the whole premise behind the tournament is promoting 'the sustainability, conservation, and sound management of mako sharks and the other apex predators.
