Mako Shark Jumps into Boat With Fishermen

A story recently just broke of a 300+ pound mako shark supposedly jumping into the boat of a couple fishermen. According to them they were about 40 miles south of New York when the shark grabbed some bait of theirs and then shortly after managed to jump into the boat. They say once into the boat the shark really started acting crazy and was attacking everything it could get its jaws on that was nearby in the boat, including the floor of the boat, in-which it managed to puncture some minor holes into and this made the boat start to take on water! Everything turned out ok for the fishermen with the exception of some damages to gear and the boat. 

This is not the first time there has been a story of mako sharks jumping into a boat, this shark species is known for this pretty well actually. Mako sharks are the athletes of the shark world, they actually are the fastest shark on earth, and can really get some big air time jetting upwards out of the water. Check out the video below to learn more about this story.
