The mako shark—the ocean's fastest and most acrobatic game fish.
Imagine a hooked mako shark jumping 20 feet into the air as it races to the horizon at 40 mph. This is what you can expect when fly fishing for mako sharks off the shores of San Diego.
There is no other game fish in the sea that compares to mako sharks jumping ability, strength, and speed. They are truly one the ocean's greatest game fish!
