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..
