New Jersey Fishermen: Shark Jumped Into Boat

A 300-lb. Mako shark jumped into a fishing boat in New Jersey last week, giving two fishermen a run for their money.

Tom Roston Jr. and Clint Simek had a close encounter¬† last week when a 300-lb., 8’4″ Mako shark jumped into their small fishing boat while they were fishing off the New Jersey shore. Can you blame them?

“It was like a moment of sharksilence and then all of the sudden it just went crazy…We’re looking at each other like, we have to control this fish because he’s coming down the side of the gunnel, where we need to be.”

Apparently the men struggled for two hours with the Mako before it gave up. You can watch a longer version of the video here.

What would you have done?
