This menacing Shark was caught under the Gladesville Bridge earlier this month.
Local fishing enthusiast Patrick McLograna tells the tale:
“It was a team effort to bring this beast on board battling with it for 1.45 hours,just past Gladesville Bridge. “
“We’ve since identified it as a Mako shark although we originally thought it might have been a bull shark.
“A group of us were out fishing for Jew fish to celebrate my father’s 81st birthday.
“This is normally a deep sea species, so to see one this far down the harbour is very rare indeed!
“We measured it at over 8ft long and conservatively weighing in around 150kgs.”
