Ken caught a 70 lb. Thresher Shark today! Friends and family are sharing in the steaks!



Shark is good, tasty eating!

Wow! Was that tail difficult to deal with when it was captured?

No, that's why they tied him down, body and tail. A friend fisherman said he once saw a man get knocked clear across the boat by that tail, which is fully as long as the shark!

I meant as he was coming out of the water, and before he was tied up.

Teeth are smaller than I would have expected.

Yes, you do have to be sure you're out of the way. The tail is very powerful. His teeth are probably about an inch or two long; some of their size is hidden by the gums; and they are razor sharp.
