This footage of an acrobatic mako shark going nuts has been plastered all over the local news stations here in Florida over the past 24 hours. People are losing their minds over this shark’s backflips, and the equally insane reaction from the 3 bros fishing out of Indian Rocks, Florida (near Tampa).

Mako sharks aren’t exactly uncommon in the deep waters off of Florida’s Wast Coast, you’re more likely to encounter them up in the Panhandle or on Florida‘s East Coast, but they are by no means a common species. If you’re planning a fishing trip and targeting mako sharks you’re best chances to hook up with one of these high-flying sharks is to head to San Diego, California, or if you’re on the East Coast of the U.S. then Montauk or Rhode Island will suffice.

This mako shark hooked off Indian Rocks Beach weighs an estimated 1,200-pounds, and measures 14-feet-long. So this is no guppy, it’s 100% an apex predator. To see this shark jump 20-feet into the air is a mind-boggling feat.
