Angler in kayak catches large shark in Newport


Paul Quirk recently reeled in a 120 pound 3 ounce thresher shark in a kayak 1,000 yards off the jetty in Newport Beach. After more than a 2.5 hour fight, the shark pulled Quirk several miles toward Dana Point before he finally captured it. The shark was in about 150 feet of water and Quirk used live mackerel for bait, 60# spectra with a wire leader and a J hook 8/0.
