Spike TV Nets Big Catch With 'The Hunt For: Monster Sharks'
One-Hour Special Premieres Monday, September 3 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT
NEW YORK, Aug. 22 -- This Labor Day, Spike TV presents the
world's premier shark hunting event, as the ocean's most lethal predator
becomes the prey in "The Hunt For: Monster Sharks." Premiering Monday,
September 3 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT, this one-hour special takes a look at the
2007 Oak Bluffs Monster Shark Tournament. In its 21st year, over 200 boats
and 1000 big game fisherman from across the country compete to catch the
largest sharks in the waters off Martha's Vineyard. "The Hunt For: Monster
Sharks" follows the fishermen from the dock to the search as they pursue
these monsters of the deep.
Featured hunters include captain Damon Sacco from Pocasset, MA, whose
boat, Castafari, caught a nearly 1200 lb. tiger shark at the 2005

dock 6 minutes late so their would-be tournament-winning catch did not
count. The captain looks for redemption in 2007. Standing in his way is the
2006 winner, Clan MacGregor from Ledyard, CT, whose crew, helmed by Captain
Scott MacGregor, captured a thresher to take home the title. MacGregor and
company look to become the first crew to win back-to-back titles in this
year's hunt for thresher and mako sharks.
"The Hunt For: Monster Sharks" also follows Provider, a local ship from
Nantucket, MA. Provider has not had much success in the ten years since
first joining the competition, but this year Captain Robert DeCosta and
crew are determined to make their mark on the tournament in front of the

and shark, with sharks weighing as much as half a ton. With big money and
reputations on the line, these anglers will fight to the finish to get
