Record Mako Shark caught off Mass coast

Local to my area:
Here are some photos of the world record mako shark (male) caught 8/27/2009 by Greg Sear's son on a charter boat out of The Mill Wharf, Scituate, MA. @ 624 lbs. 109". The last picture is the tuna (or what remains of the tuna) that was on the hook when the mako was caught.

The Box.... Just the box please.

An addition to the last post.
This Rhodes Minnow box went for an astounding $788.00 for the BOX only!
I break it down like this... It's a simple box, cardboard with some paper glued to the lid. It does'nt even have a picture on it of the sweet lure that should be in the box.. its just a box.

The reality is it's a wonderful specimen of a Rhodes minnow box and a fine piece of fishing history that will undoubtedly be preserved in somone's collection and I suppose that's what is important in the end. I only wish it wound up in my collection.

Quick Casts.... Recent Ebay Stunners

I have had the pleasure of being able to follow a few recent auctions on Ebay and thought I would share in case you missed them.
The first is a Sand Eel imitation from Edward vom Hofe in a beautiful early 1900's box. This would have most likely been used in saltwater fishing, especially for stripers. The box reads "If it's fishing tackle, it's Edward vom Hofe's" Great combo and the price dictated that - it came in at $393.00


The second is a Pflueger Supreme DL, Model CK. Pretty slick looking reel that had me guessing the whole time. By the time it was over it had realized $1345.00 Not bad considering that if most folks saw this at a yard sale it would probably have a tag on it for less than 10 bucks.... I pray for days like that.

Someone got a Big Head for Big money

Big Head for Big money.

Got home just in time to catch the end of Tom Jacomet's Ebay auction on this Heddon "Big Head" lure, Model #9330 in Color NFL - chrome with Fluorescent red rib. The Lure sold at a whopping $418.00 and some change.

I love lures like this that sell for these astonishing prices, I probably would have missed this one in any tackle box. Nice Lure Tom!
