Captain Mark “the Shark” Quartiano stunned tourists along Miami Beach and beyond with the announcement that one of his fishing clients caught a 624 lb. Bull Shark in ten feet of water just off Miami Beach.
Captain Mark is a famous fishing guide in the area. With the help of instagram and text messaging, he told the world that the shark’s stomach had half of a tarpon in it. It also contained 3 jack crevalles, 1 hawksbill turtle, and 1 permit.” Mr. Quartiano did not give up the name of the angler. People who catch sharks and kill them for sport are coming under increasing criticism. The general public is becoming more aware that even sharks are dwindling in numbers and could one day be on the endangered species list.
Tourists who gathered the see the ocean beast were pleased it was dead. “Something like that could ruin your whole vacation,” Cindy Mayer from Knoxville, Tennessee told a reporter.
This isn’t the first time Mark has come up with something big near Miami Beach. He also snagged a very rare deep sea stingray in November of 2013.
Stingrays like this one may look like a deep sea monster, but actually, they are very gentle creatures as I found out on a trip to Grand Cayman Island. Check out my video below and see how easy going these fellas can be.
