Summer fishing off the coast of Maine!! My dad, my uncle and myself had two monster Blue Sharks on at the same time!! Both measured over 10.5 feet, and I think one was closer to 12ft!! After getting both close to the boat to be considered a "catch" we released both of them. Both swam off healthy, but tired from the 50 minute fight!! #blueshark #sharks #shark #catchandrelease #fishing #Maine #summer16 #SummerSixteen #spurs #girlpower #gospursgo #sanantonio #sanantoniospurs #nba #satx #spursnation #ocean
