Mako Shark Reenacts Jaws by Completely Ruining Fishermen’s Day

A few mates were fishing in Australia when a mako shark kept coming around to just ruin their fishing day.

Near the coast of Perth, Australia, 19-year-old Jake Beazley was out saltwater fishing with his friends when the grumpy mako shark started to reenact Jaws right outside the boat.

When Beazley hooked a fish, the mako shark showed up and started to wreak havoc.

As the fishermen were untangling their lines, the mako shark swam up and just started causing trouble, first by taking one of the fish on the line.

It soon circled back and started chomping on the motor and propellor of the boat, which seems all too familiar. The friends immediately headed back to shore, unwilling to have any one of them play the part of Captain Quint.

The shark leaped out of the water before the crew took off at full speed ahead.
