Estimated 800-pound shark caught off Marina del Rey

Or maybe it was even bigger…!

Why? Because the scales at the dock go up to only 750 pounds! :-)

A shark, which was believed to be a shortfin mako, was caught 15 miles of the coast of Marina del Rey on Monday and HAULED by the tail back to the dock because it was too big to fit in the boat. Craig Campbell, general manager of Del Rey Landing, believes that the shark weighed between 800 and 900 pounds.

At least six men were needed to left the shark from the water to the dock. Campbell noted that the fishing is good right now, especially for halibut, and that the big fish are coming in closer to shore.

KTLA has a short video of the shortfin mako shark.
