Mako leaps into boat in Destin Shark Week finale

When Mike Tohkeim brought this 256 pound mako back to the docks in Destin, the crowds went wild!

Shark Week in Destin ended with a big finish!

And Tyler Searle, with Just Chute Me Parasail, has the scoop.

At 5 a.m. Saturday, Mike Tokheim, captain of the O'Fishl Business, was fishing offshore about 130 miles when he hooked a monster mako shark.

The 256-pounder made three jumps during the fight, and on the third he jumped 20 feet in the air and landed on the boat, thrashing and biting. Word is he even took a couple chunks out of the deck.

Tokheim brought the fish to the docks Sunday afternoon drawing a crowd of gawkers to his slip behind Boschamps.
