Hooked a Great White Shark

Thank you to Blake, David, Joey, The Happy Family From Denmark, and all the friendly folks I met on the pier. Mission not accomplished. Stay tuned for a thresher catch and cook video! #VINCEGOESFISHING I do not target White Sharks. I was fishing for a thresher shark, but I hooked something much bigger. I believe it was a white shark that nearly spooled my Lexa 400 with 50lb braid before it chewed through my 300lb mono leader after about 20 minutes. We were thinking maybe a monster bat ray. But the abrasion on the line suggests a white shark. Plus, I saw it swirl on the surface after tail-whacking my bait, it looked like a huge dolphin. Then it circled back, picked up my bait, and my line started peeling slowly but steadily, so I winded down and it was fish on. "It is NOT legal to fish for or catch white sharks, as they have been protected in California since January 1, 1994. White sharks in California are also protected by federal regulations and must be immediately released if caught accidentally.",immediately%20released%20if%20caught%20accidentally.
