mouth on the under side is five feet

made its presence known by thump

peared alongside and hit the Good

Luckily the shark had entangled Its

meshes of the net. Before it could
tear itself free three thicknesses of
the net were wound around it. Then
the struggle began The six men on

The Pioneer II. came to the assist

the Goodpartner after about an hour
of the conflict. They towed the fish
and the boat to a sandy beach. Tackle
was fastened to a tree on the shore
and the Pioneer's winch managed to
pull the fighting fish into the shoal
water. As the tide ebbed the shark
was left high and dry. and its strug
gles diminished. At one o'clock Cap
tain George Saeher of the Pioneer II
got close enough to the fish to chop a
hole in -ts throat with an ax.
Besides the personal injuries suf

crew, a big net valued at >1.900 was
