Snagging 844 Pound Mako Shark Is The Ultimate Mancation

Six friends went to a fishing tournament looking to catch some grouper and ended up hauling in a Jaws-like 844-pound shark instead. Needless to say, when Adlee Bruner and friends to pulled into the docks for the Destin Fish Rodeo prize, their Gulf of Mexico 11-foot mako shark set a Destin Fishing Rodeo record.

While this year's rodeo is not only un-winnable, but also over, next year's rodeo looms, and Adlee Bruner set the bar high for 2008. However, FishDestin gives you plenty of chances to practice between now and then. Family fishing, corporate fishing, and bay fishing are all offered. Don't see "big ass shark fishing trips", but apparently that is a possible bonus of any trip. Can you imagine if one of these "Family Fishing Trips" hooked a 844 pound Mako? Anyway, it goes without saying if you pull in Jaws you have had the ultimate mancation. Drinks are on AJ's, or they should be.
