Mako Shark

So I was minding my own business and trolling a line, and then I saw a little fin hanging off my line!
And it was a short finned Mako shark! Here is a video of when I brought it alongside. I got my lure from its jaws, and hooked my gaff in the mouth to hold it, and then let it go. I didn't pull any teeth, which I am now thinking that I should have done. It was a beautiful fish, and had wonderful coloration, and nice smooth skin. Also it had a bunch of parasites all over its skin.
