ive hooked a lot of sharks 500 estimate up to 500 lbs ,the first thing i did when i bought my yacht was to transfer permit to that vessel...large ocean sharks r dangerous and so r the smaller ones as they can be much quicker at the boat.....there a lot of fun when u have the proper eqip...this summer i will introduce my so to large sharks when they come up here in augest...i will post pics ...dont panic when u hook up and remember that a large fish takes time to wear down before it can be handled safely this is not a sport to read a couple of blogs and then have at it...anything worth doing is worth doing well...ther r plenty of seminars on off shore fishing ..rayder...ps ther is nothing like bringing to the boat a fish that weighs twice as much as you...me210lbs

Not exactly thread related, but I thought I would share some of my fishing photo's. From my brother in laws Donzi Offshore out of St. Augustine.

My King Fish; actually a King Makerel



The Cuda did not stay on the boat very long.



And so that we do keep on topic,
our Shark. (please no comments about the sixteen year old in a bikini)

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

No, the cute little shark went back in the tank, we did not eat him.

The Baracuda was only on deck long enough to take a couple of photos.
We were all warned to stay away from the very sharp teeth.

The King fish was brought home and given to my Brother-in-laws Church.
They use it in thier soup kitchen and it helps to feed the less fortunate.

Nice pics tj.

Those Cudas can get nasty, been up close and personal with many during dive charters - but fortunately no attacks yet. Here are some shots from our last trip to the Keys . . .

Don't wear shiny jewelry when diving with barracudas around.

By the time you buy the gear and poles you could have bought enough fish to make the voyage without the gear (J/K)

Spanish Mackeral

Caught these sailing the gulf from Tampa to Ft. Meyers. I hadn't brought any gear with me, but a previous owner had left 4 or 5 lures at the bottom of a compartment. I tied em to some kinda line and threw em over. I got these two pretty quick but then I started pulling only remnants of hooked fish. Then 4 or 5 times in a row hard hits with only empty line coming back aboard. Never thought about jumping in to find out what was eating my catches and lures! It was fun and I look forward to much more of it in the future.

I'm goin to cheat a little bit some of these are from work.



J caught this one on a hand line

As far as sharks go I really try to avoid them. Unless there are Makos around. They are one heck of pull but very dangerous around the boat.
remember a shark has no skeleton they can bite their own tail.
And in general I don't want to eat anything that urinates through its skin.
Makos are one of the exceptions they have a separate urinary track.
