Re: Dead Whale?

found a dead whale in the gulf of maine in the early 90s,wiggled on up and stayed upwind as i aproached i saw a huge 14ft shark rub up against the arch just in front of the tail,he got about 3 foot out of water and then bit down trough the whale slashing his head from side to side and tore off a half pie shaped piece..i fished there a while trying to lure him to my offerrings....a whale whatch boat pulled up and grossed out 70 people...there were 100s of tuna birds in a thirty yard wide oil slick that extended to the horizon....i caught a few smaller sharks 8 or 9 feet but nevrr hooked up the monster.....the all time all tackle record for rod and reel was established in the 1980s a monster ...they used to kill pilot whales for chum,now both the great white and piolet whale are federally protected endangered species
