A fisherman on the day charter boat Enterprise was thrilled when he started catching sand bass Wednesday. But when Blake Hon hooked what seemed like a pretty large one, a fight was on.
It seems Hon hooked a sand bass, alright. But a giant mako shark wanted it, too, and gobbled Hon's fish--and Hon's hook, as Patch contributor Philip Friedman reported.
The #2 hook was fine for the day's bait, anchovies, and the 15-pound test was adquate for the sand bass, blogger Friedman wrote. But both were overpowered by what Friedman called the "mammoth" shark.
