Fisherman Hooks Monster Skate Off Miami Beach

12 posts in this topic

A Florida fisherman who hooked an 800-pound deep sea beast in the waters off Miami Beach says the mysterious fish was like "a dinosaur."

Captain Mark Quartiano, a charter boat operator who also goes by "Mark the Shark," is seen grinning next to his fearsome catch in an Instagram photo he posted over the weekend.

Imagine if you caught a fleeting glance of that thing breaching the surface... it might look like some giant sea monster's head

They take a cookie cutter to the smaller ones to make the cheap scallops.

To be that large, it has to be very old. They let it go. It was the right thing to do.

They weighed it which means they had to lift it up out of the water. Chances are it did a lot of internal damage and I'm betting that it will ultimately kill the animal. Predators can sense any sort of change from normal behavior which will make the skate a target.
