Robert Hill, about 70miles southwest of this beach city in the Florida Panhandle. The fishermen first noticed the big mako because it kept eating grouper and scamp they had hooked. “It was like `Jaws,”‘ Hill said. Hill hooked a two-foot amberine on as bait and tossed it out. The shark eventually hit it. After the long fight, the shark was gaffed and eventually gave up after its tail was roped. By The Associated Press DESTIN, Fla. – Six friends went to a fishing tournament looking to catch some grouper. They caught an 844-pound shark instead. The fight by Adlee Bruner and friends to pull the 11-foot mako shark onto the boat from the Gulf of Mexico took more than an hour on Saturday. But when they made it back to land, it was a record for the decades-old Destin Fishing Rodeo. “It was tense,” Bruner, 47, said about the fight to land the shark, which has a mouthful of huge, fearsome teeth. “I’ve fished for 40 years. I’ve never seen one that big.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
