Everybody has a fish story. Most are exaggerated. Jim Abernethy has film of his.

The shark expert was shooting underwater video of a blue marlin when he got a surprise visit from a 600-pound mako shark.

The diver's reaction is priceless as is NSFW language when he surfaces.

"We need a bigger boat" might have come to my mind.
