Default Navarre Mako season

While dodging cobia boats last week at Navarre I hooked a 5 ft mako , one week to the day of hooking an even bigger one at the same place. The shark turned me around then went completely airborn , switched directions and fouled my second line I hadn't had time to bring in. With both rods bent over and singing it was on for a good while. Lots of fun and excitement. I'm pretty sure it was a mako after comparing my underwater pic with other mako photos. If anyone knows for sure the species , let me know.

+1 Not a Mako

If he jumped a lot, I would tend more towards spinner

Yep both look alike and both jump and spin...that beefy head and dorsal fin location are why I say blacktip. The anal fin is the tell all but we can't see it from that picture...blacktips do not have a black tip on their anal fin...weird I know haha

Yup, spinner. See the black tip on the anal fin. Blacktips lack that. Cool pic!

The anal fin is the one in the bottom right hand of the pic. It has a black tip and a blacktip wouldn't, get it, haha.

That's not the anal fin boss man...there's another fin past that, before the tail...that would be the anal fin. Another difference in a blacktip and spinner is the stalkiness of the fish from its head to dorsal fin
