It was apparently caught at El Choyudo, just south of Tastiota, the coordinates show the same rocks as the third photo: 28°19'8.93"N 111°27'17.34"W

yeah, I was looking at the rocks and buildings in the background and they do not look familiar (around Kino), but it certainly could be Choyudo...

That is a huge fish. Do you see now why humans are meant for being on land? Two tons of shark coming at you at a top speed of around 15 miles an hour. Ha! I think the next time I am in Kino I'll stick to soaking in the sun on the beach! Spectacular shark, thanks for the pics!

According to this article in El Imparcial, the shark got caught in a net and was dead when the fisherman discovered it.  5 meters long and 1 ton, according to the article.

Just wondering. What do you do with a shark like that? I mean is someone going to eat it?

For sue-she: All those folks in the photo are most likely pangueros or subsistence fisherman. Suspect that big shark is all divided up by now. :)

Here is some more news on this catch: a 20 footer!!!

Hi Sean,

I think I'd use a surfboard with a sharpened 3 prong rock anchor for a hook as a surface jig! Either that, or a whole turkey instead of a Turkey Slider!

Here's to swimmin' with bowlegged women!

Does anyone know anything more about this GW shark that was caught in Guaymas? This is pretty sad. A creature that big and amazing sure didn't deserve that.

It was not Guaymas - but north ( Choyudo ) sp ? ( Near Kino area )

Caught in a net by accident , and dead when hauled in - not much fun for the fishermen as the bureaucrats are all over them , agree sad for the shark and us as it was an awesome specimen .

I was at the next village down the coast friday from where it was landed and it was pretty clear to me the locals believed it was an unintentional catch - we don't know if enough of the carcass survived filleting to allow a post mortem to figure cause of death but the authorities were very active from what I was told.

Puts a whole new spin on kayaking offshore :-)

Just want to ask the old timer, experienced boaters around here, how often in the last 10 years has a big shark been seen in this middle Sea of Cortez area near shore? What would u guess the age of this shark is?
