About 30 miles off the mouth of the Mississippi River out of Venice, LA, Baton Rouge angler Lane Foil and his friends were catching yellowfin tuna and about to gaff a 130-pounder when an 11-foot, 6-inch mako shark launched from the water at point-blank range, grabbing the freshly caught tuna in its mouth. Foil quickly rigged a bonito, pitched it into the water, and caught the 765-pound shark, shattering the old Louisiana state record and setting a new mark for the Gulf.
