Record Mako

August 29, 2009

[dme:image size="large" side="left" title="Record Mako [nid:1001316772]" index="-1"/]

Sharks will always draw a crowd and the one that 20-year-old Taylor Sears of Scituate, Mass. hung on the dock scales the other day was no different. But it was really quite different—perhaps the biggest male mako shark ever caught on a rod and reel.

Sears, a summertime charterboat mate, and crew were fishing for bluefin tuna in the southwest corner of Stellwagon Bank on Thursday when they hooked into a tuna. After a 45-minute fight, the big shark decided that it was time to eat and chomped the tuna in half. A quick re-rig and Sears was shark fishing and hooked the mako within minutes. It took two-hours to boat the 624-pounder.

    Go Get ’Em Tred!!-8



    “I made it in the hospital through the bleakest, worst times of my entire life. I was in there for 90 days. I made through 80 of them before they broke me! I just couldn’t do it anymore,” says Tred. 

    According to Tred’s wife Anni, the last high dose of chemotherapy destroyed his kidneys and some liver function. He suffered major depression. Anni and Tred finally decided it was more important to get his head turned around than anything. So Tred—at long last—returned home. Since then, things have brightened dramatically. His kidneys look like they’re responding positively. His most recent blood tests show improvement in his Waldenströms. The local Shaw Cancer Center is trying something new – a milder treatment that can be done at home one day a week for several months, then once a month forever.

    Streamside Obama-30


    The media was kept away from Barack Obama’s first foray into presidential trout fishing last week during his trip to Montana. But thanks to hollow cottonwoods and tall streamside grass, Outdoor Life managed to catch a few snippets of Obama’s conversation with fishing guide Dan Vermillion during the rainy session on the East Gallatin River.

    “Wow, these hooks are sharp as a Sarah Palin glare.”

    “Yeah, I know. You just hooked me in the ear with your last backcast.”

    “Sorry, Dan. I guess I’m a little preoccupied with health care. Speaking of which, you need a Band-Aid? You’re bleeding pretty bad.”

    “I’m okay. Whoa, you just missed a rise. You have to keep your eye on your fly.”

    “Hey! That sort of talk back in D.C. will get you a restraining order. And a call from Larry Craig.”

    “So, the word out here in the West is that you’re going to take away all our guns once the economy turns around.”

    “Oh, Dan, that’s a bunch of crazy talk. Between you and me, the gun industry is so economically viable that I’m actually thinking of, you know, maybe consolidating some of it in my Homeland Security department.”
