1940's photo

I saw this old photo today, sad image but thought I would share it on the Cuba forum. Recorded as the biggest catch to date (I think this may of since been beaten, but unfortunately you rarely see White Sharks this big anymore), caught in Cuba 1945, officially measured and verified at 21.3 feet in length and 7,100 lbs.

Wow, and long before “Jaws” made people familiar with the Great White (and not in a good way!) Thanks for posting the photo, Warren.

Sad indeed.
Then there are fish"Stories" like this one about the 37’ Great White:

That’s a big fish, as a general rule I stay out of their territory and they stay out of mine. :slight_smile:

Holy crap that is a giant fish. Unbelievable.

Cheers,
