Big Hammerhead Shark caught aboard Hooked Up
Today we had Larry and his son Jack along with Ron out for some deep-sea fishing aboard the Hooked Up.
We started out trolling and landing a couple black fin tunas.
Than we brought in the trolling gear and started doing some deep drops with a chicken rig (5 hooks in a line with a lead at the bottom) once the bait hit the bottom BAM they started biting BUT while we were fishing the bottom we also had a shark bait out just in case!
So there we were just picking at the tilefish and we kind of forgot about our shark bait TILL BAM the big rod bent over and line started peeling off the reel. We Were Hooked Up!!
Jack jumped in the chair and the fight was on. Jack was doing all he could with this sea monster on the other end but there was no stopping this fish than Larry jumped in to give a hand. Back and forth the fight went on and on but at last they got this 98-inch hammerhead shark to the boat.
WOW what a great fight and a great big shark.
Larry if you guys could send me a couple of the pictures I would love to post them.
