Mako shark speared by marlin bill: Photos

BERMAGUI commercial fisherman Jason Moyce was amazed to catch a mako shark that had a marlin bill poking all the way through its body.

The 120kg mako had what appeared to be marlin bill pierced all the way through its torso, from one side to another.

Jason said it appeared the bill had been in there for over a year as it had seaweed and other marine growth growing on it.

“Can't imagine the force the marlin hit it to go through over two foot of flesh and skin. Must of been an epic battle. Would love to know the story...Amazing ocean I work on!”
