Rod & Gun Club – Amazing Catch !!

On March 17th, 2019, John Imbesi on “Huntress” caught an amazing Thresher Shark measuring 11 feet 10 inches with an overall estimated weight of 307 pounds. It is important to note a deep water Thresher shark is one of the finest eating sharks. Many aficionados stating that it is significantly better tasting than the prized Mako Shark. This surprising catch was prepared as table food and widely distributed throughout the Ocean Reef community and enjoyed by many.
