Today we had Sam and a few of his business colleagues on an afternoon trip. They were looking to catch something big so we decided to go out to a little deeper water to do some kite/shark fishing. After about 45 minutes, Capt Darin spotted a huge Hammerhead shark on the surface heading right for our top bait. Everyone got a turn fighting the Hammerhead shark, bringing it to the boat after about 40 minutes. Congratulations Sam on your trophy Hammerhead Shark! We are looking forward to seeing you all again in March.
