Mako shark Port Aransas

On a 9 hour fishing charter while deep sea fishing in Port Aransas, Byron Noles caught a 282lb Mako Shark! With the average weights of these sharks typically ranging from 132–298lbs, Nathen caught a monster! They aren’t an easy catch in the deep sea either with their maneuvers and speed making for a hard fight. This offshore fishing trip was chartered by Port Aransas Fisherman’s Wharf with Captain Jake Alkire.

Angler Nathen Powers’s 502lb Mako Shark caught off the Port Aransas coast on a deep sea fishing trip chartered by Port Aransas Fisherman’s Wharf captain Jake Alkire.

Thirty-four miles offshore, this deep sea adventure brought home the largest Mako shark the Scat Cat has ever seen at 10ft 6in! Certainly a catch to tell the grandchildren one day… far in the future for this youngster.
