According to this story from the Associated Press, the 375-pound mako shark hanging next to fisherman Jason Kresse of Freeport, Texas, didn't require a lot of angling prowess to catch. No, it actually just jumped into his boat while he and his crew were tossing fish guts from their red snapper catch over the side. Now this is not the first time a mako has shot skyward and ended up flopping on a deck. Question is, what would you do if it happened to you?
Option 1: Get as far away from the shark as possible and let it thrash itself to death on the deck.
Option 2: Find the closest long, heavy, blunt object and swing away at the fish's head.
Option 3: Jump on its back like a gator wrestler and sever its spine right behind the head with a knife.
