Today we had a shred charter with Eddie and his wife Ellen from Alabama and Frank and his 2 sons witch we never did get their names. Sorry about that guys.
We went right to kite fishing in 150 feet of water with 4 live baits suspended from the kites.
After a good hour with not so much as a nibble I decided to work my way out to deeper water.
Once I had worked our way out to about 350 of water J.J. set out a shark bait on the bottom along with another shark bait just drifting behind us.
After another long 45 min of waiting just as we were about to bring in all the baits and switch to trolling Captain J.J. yelled from the cockpit to keep an eye on the deep line!! No sooner did the words get out of J.J. mouth the deep rod bent over and line was screaming off the reel.
Eddie jumped in the chair and the fight was on.
At first there was no stopping this fish but after about 10 min the fish settled down and Eddie started to gain some line on this SEA MONSTER.
Than out of nowhere up popped this hammerhead shark after one of our kite baits. Then BAM we were Hooked Up again now we had Eddie fighting his fish and one of Frank’s son’s fighting this hammerhead shark on 30-pound test line. Talk about getting covered up!!!
They say that fishing is hours of boredom interrupted by moments of panic and cayus. Well this is the perfect example.
While this hammerhead was still taking line Eddie was getting his fish closer and closer to the boat. Once Eddie’s fish was close enough we slid him in the tuna door got a few quick photos and a measurement of his shark and watched him swim away in good shape.
Ok one down and one to go. We fought this hammerhead for another 20 min but I’m sorry to say that he did finally bite through the leader and got away. (RATS)
While we did not have a lot of action during the whole trip we sure got a lot in a very short period.
Guys thanks again for your patience and for hanging in there aboard the Hooked Up
