    Default 2000-Pound Shark Caught Off Mexico Coast Could Be Longest Great White Spotted

    2000-Pound Shark Caught Off Mexico Coast Could Be Longest Great White Spotted

    Posted: 04/20/2012 11:44 am Updated: 04/20/2012 12:26


    A 2,000-pound great white shark was caught this week in northwestern Mexico.



    Duh nuh...

    Duh nuh...


    Duh nuh, duh nuh, duh nuh, duh nuh DUH NUH!


    A great white shark nearly 20 feet long and weighing 2,000 pounds was caught by commercial fisherman in northwestern Mexico this week.


    The shark was dead by the time fishermen brought it to the surface, but they were still shocked by their discovery.


    "We were amazed and immediately realized that we had a huge, dead, great white shark," Guadalupe, one of the men who caught the ferocious fish, told reporters. "And then we thought 'what are we going to do?'"


    They dragged the floating shark two miles to shore.


    If the shark is truly around 19.8 feet long, it would be one of the longest great whites ever recorded.

    probably caught in their nets. Happens alot, hungry sharks get attracted to fish in distress.

    Great white washed up dead, near where my dad lives, turns out it choked on a seal.

    Seems like a lot of blood near the mouth for getting caught up in a fishing net . Incredible shark though.

    i don't get why bodybuilders don't eat shark more often. it's pretty cheap, it's not fishy, it's very meaty but not fatty and soaks up a lot of flavor.

    Daaaaamnnnn that's a big fish!

    That is exactly why I stay out of the ocean! They'll shoot like a torpedo up from underneath you, breach out of the water 10 feet into the air with you dangling out of their mouth...no thanks!

    I wonder how long it was dead, and if the "meat" is something even worth trying to eat.

    True shark story from down under. back in the 60s through to the 80s, shark hunters used to run around in little 14-15ft aluminum boats, with buckets with fish blood and guts called chum, and drift around throwing the stuff (chumming up) into the water, to attract sharks. When the sharks come up, they stir them up with a hunk of meat that had a giant hook in it, tied to a rope. once the shark bit it, they would pull its head out and use whats called a power head tipped spear(kinda like a gun for under water) and kill it. Then they would tow it back in, behind their little boat and parade it around, "look at this vicious man eater we caught in our little boats".

    Well one of these hunting parties went and nailed a 10 or 12ft Tiger shark (prolly only 7 or 8ft, you know how fisherman are), and while they were towing it back, they got jolted, then all of a sudden they picked up pace again, thinking they had lost their catch, they pulled their rope in, and found nothing but the Sharks head left. Something bigger had a free meal on them.
