    According to the fisherman, the head of a massive mako shark were caught in the net.

    "So this was all we got back of this monster mako. Unfortunately we didn't see what ate it but it must of been impressive!!" Moyce wrote.

    According to Moyce, he was hoping for at least a small catch and did not expect that he would reel in the monstrous killer fish.

    Social media users began to discuss the possible cause of death of the shark.
