Do you have any news stories or pictures of it hanging from scales? Just to me that doesn't look close to a 16' shark.

I know the guide that brought it to the boat, the fish was not taken to the scales. I'm taking his word on the estimated length relative to the boat he was in...as well as the estimated weight.

Big fish! Nice to hear they released it. Takes a long time to grow that big.
