Great White Shark Drags Charter Boat for 5 Miles

By Chad Love

Here's one that's ripe for a Jaws joke: A Canadian tourist out for a leisurely day of charter boat fishing off Florida's coast hooked into a massive great white shark that towed the boat some five miles before it was released.

From this story on myfoxtampabay.com:
When a Canadian tourist headed out in the Gulf to go fishing Friday, he never could have expected to reel-in an 18-foot great white shark. And every bit of Fab Marchese's big "fish story" is true. That great white shark took him on a wild ride and because he never let go he's got the greatest story to tell for the rest of his life.

According to the story, Marchese was fishing with Go Fast Fishing Charters about 30 miles off shore when the big shark showed up, took a hook, and spent the next three-and-half hours towing the boat across the ocean. Eventually the shark, which was estimated at 18 feet and between 2,500 and 3,000 pounds, was brought boatside and released.
