Patrick Cruz, Philip Overby, and Ted Van Slyck caught this monster mako shark 30-miles offshore in the Florida Keys at "The Wall". We were fishing for dolphin (and were successful), but suddenly we started reeling in only half of our fish. Soon after a huge shark appeared and started chomping the boat motor! We grabbed our cameras and a pole and hooked up. We fought it for 90 min before finally getting him to the boat again. Everything was filmed with 2 GoPro Hero 2 cameras. Here are links to our videos -

Location: Marathon Key, Florida. 30 miles offshore at "The Wall"
