Homer charter chaptain Josh Brooks spent Tuesday fishing by himself with one goal in mind: finding a salmon shark. The day was a success when Brooks hooked his prey 30 feet below the surface in 100 feet of water. He estimated the shark weighed 350-375 pounds. Brooks donated the jaw to the Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies; the meat, which he referred to as “pork chop of the sea,” went into his freezer.
