506.0 lb. Thresher Shark caught by Billfish Sportfishing fishing in Massachusetts on 07/18/03
190.0" / 506.0 lb. Thresher Shark caught by Billfish Sportfishing fishing on Friday July 18, 2003 at 08:30 49.12 km from Nantucket in Nantucket County, Massachusetts (MA), United States North America using a Baitfish

The winning fish- a 506 lb thresher- in the 2003 Oak Bluffs Monster Shark Touranment attempts to throw itself back into the water. My son & Mate, Pat Brown tackled it and used even more retraints to tie it down.
This fish took 2 1/2 hours to land using a PENN 50 lb standup outfit by Jon Wietecha.

Super congrats to you Jon on landing this brute
I guess the key is tiring him out and hold
The line steady until he gets close enough to gaff.
