Craziest fish story?

Was trolling for white marlin in the Poormans canyon and a swordfish pops up in front of us. The tail had been just bitten off. We went over and gaffed it and a huge mako swims by. We cut off a chunk of sword tail and pulled out an 80 with a shark rig on it and threw it in the water. Mako inhales the bait and we get spooled with 34lbs of drag.
