Short Fin Mako caught in Kadavu (and of course released!)

Yesterday we had a go at a swordfish with Joe in the chair. 
Deep bait dropped down to 450m. 7 minutes into our second drop we had this guy explode from the surface and leap 15 feet into the air.... For a second we all stopped and stared....then we realised we were connected to it !
We fought the fish alongside....and released.....
Short Fin Mako Shark
It would have been a Fiji National (All-Tackle) Record.....
Is this a cool fish or what !!!
