Had another great weekend out on the beach fishing! I caught this beast on a big hunk of bunker in 6-8 feet of water. It damn near wore me out... Took a solid 15 minutes to get it in. It was awesome, they are a blast to catch. Fishing for bluefish and kingfish was good too! Had a few nice sized blues go in the cooler!

This beast may be the biggest and heaviest shark ive caught all summer!! It hit very hard and made my line scream out to sea! Hes curled up in the picture but was easily 4 ft. I have caught alot of these sharks and its still a blast fighting them every time. I was actually trying for blues and kingfish with a mullet rig so i was surprised he didnt break my rig. I was able to land the shark but it did pretty much destroy my rig! And the hook was so mangled i had to throw it out. This was a very active shark... it was trying to bite me the whole time i was getting the hook out. Hes swimming as we speak and i have all my fingers! -Mike

Here is a nice kingfish. I couldnt find kingfish in the species list. This bad boy had my smaller rod dancing like crazy! It pulled on my line pretty hard so i thought it may have been a bigger bluefish but no...I like catching these. They look like they have a dumb grin on his face!! I threw this one back, he was a little on the small side so i let him get bigger. Got him on a finger mullet rig in shallow water.

I was able to sneak out of work a few days early last week so i packed up and went to the beach!! GONE FISHING! Leaving thursday morning was a great choice... No traffic going down and none coming back home saturday. Thursday had to be some of the best fishing... It was non stop action.. In the 5 hours i fished i caught 2 big sharks, about a dozen snapper blues, and 3 kingfish. Here is one of the sharks i got. This was the smaller of the 2 but it was still over 3 feet long and was very lively. I had to be very careful reeling him in because he hooked into a mullet rig and they have smaller flimsy hooks. I thought id lose him but he was hooked very well. Released safely. At one point i had to take all 3 lines out of the water just to catch a break and smoke my cigar!! Anyway it was just a great overall day of fishing!!

Here is another "nice" bluefish i caught last weekend. Trading a small fish for a bigger fish! Got him on a mullet rig. Last weekend the red rigs got all the action. Its weird because the weekend before not a fish was caught on reds... only green. I try to have alot of rigs in multiple colors and use what works. I plan to sneak out of work early this week and get back to the beach! Im hoping that the blue bite is even better!!

Species:Flounder

Here is a little flounder. I have always had a hard time catching flounder... Especially keepers. I often get skunked. I normally just drift in deeper water with a flounder rig with squid or minnow. I would love any tips or suggestions on catching these. Id love to get a big door mat flounder for dinner before it gets too cold! I am really enjoying posting the fish i catch! I try to spread the word on stackfish whenever i talk to other fisherman... I look forward to the cooler weather and all the fish it brings! -Mike

Caught this little shark on the surf in South Bethany. This shark must have just been born! It was the smallest shark ive ever seen. While reeling it in i thought it mite of been a nice blue. I had to be very delicate while getting the hook out. He felt fragile! Got him on a mullet rig around 10 pm. His face does not look happy but he made it back in the water to grow bigger!!

Another nice sized shark! Caught him at night in the surf on a big chunk of bunker. Like a dummy i forgot my lantern so i had to really be careful while unhooking this guy. Its about 3-4 feet long. Excellent fighter. Took a few minutes to reel him in.

The next morning a HUGE bloated sea turtle washed up... A minute later my line screamed out to sea.. It was a huge shark! I let him take my line until i thought he was going to take all of it!! I didnt even have a chance with this one. It snapped my line taking my rig, bait, and about half of my 40 lb braided line! My guess is that the dead turtle had a bunch of big sharks feeding in the area. I was bummed that i missed it but later thought it may have been a good thing... I was alone and probably would of had a hard time getting the hook out! Lots of fun catching these..

This was one of the nicer blues i caught over the weekend. Its good to see them back... They are fun to catch, ok to eat, and they dont wear out your arm like these sharks! And i dont fear my hand getting chomped off! I kept a few for my boss. He likes to smoke them...Says the taste like crab that way. ill give it a shot!

Caught this little blue out on the surf last weekend! I was excited to get one because i havent been getting any blues all summer! I guess they are all up north in cooler waters... Or Shaka antoine has caught them all!! Either way i got it on a mullet rig in maybe 8 feet of water. Good fun. Could of made nice shark bait but he lived to see another day.

I have been slamming these sand sharks on the surf in south bethany beach de... They love chunk bunker! Especially fresh!! They seen to run a little bigger at night. This was one of the bigger ones. It damn neat pulled my rod in the water but i grabbed it right in time and the fight was on! I knew right away that it was a shark by the way it fought. They shake their heads and make runs for deeper water. Check out the teeth on this shark! Watch out tho... DNR are giving out big fines for improper handling... You are not allowed to take the shark out of the water for pictures so im technically breaking the rules here but the shark made it back in the water just fine! Great fun! Also got some kingfish,blues,and skates. ill post them next

We were nailing these sharks fishing out in the surf using chunk bunker! They hit and fought hard. Alot of fun! I am starting to miss catching bluefish... The only thing biting are these sharks. I had a rig for kingfish, bluefish, and shark. The king setup did nothing. Got sharks on the other two. Beats work 10 out of 10 days!!
