Very good, Sir. I watched a friend of mine land a 55" smooth hound in A/C harbor years ago. He released it and then found out the next day that it could have been a 15# test record for California. Ouch...........

kwaltersmi Here's a juvenile tiger shark we caught on a long-line in Bimini. We tagged and released him for photos.

TrueBlue Busted.

How about a couple nurse shark pics I took in Key Largo? I have a video of a huge Bull Shark I encountered in Mexico - but too large for YouTube . . . have to take my word for it.

camaraderie They're all over the place in the Bahamas!


This is the marina at Staniel Cay in the Exumas in about 8 feet of water.

poopdeckpappy Nice TB

Don't think I'll get a pic ( my camera isn't wp ) and it's only in the late evening when it comes around, if I get a good look at it, then I should be able to figure out what make & model it is

TrueBlue I caught this monster a few weeks ago, was so huge we had to haul onto the boat with the boom.

A photo of the beastie in question would help. Not that I'm suggesting you go swimming to get one..

sanctuarysam sure it wasn't a Land Shark (Candygram... )
or maybe....

She came down from Cincinnati.
It took her three days on a train.
Lookin' for some peace and quiet;
hoped to see the sun again.
But now she lives down by the ocean.
She's takin' care to look for sharks.
They hang out in the local bars,
And they feed right after dark.

[Chorus:]
Can't you feel 'em circlin' honey?
Can't you feel 'em swimmin' around?
You got fins to the left, fins to the right,
and you're the only bait in town.
You got fins to the left, fins to the right,
and you're the only girl in town.

She's savin' up all of her money.
Wants to head south in May;
Maybe roll in the sand with a rock'n'roll man,
Somewhere down Montserrat way.
But the money's good in the season;
Helps to lighten her load.
Boys keep her high as the months go by.
She's gettin' postcards from the road.

[Chorus]

Sailed off to Antigua.
It took her three days on a boat.
Lookin' for some peace and quiet;
Maybe keep her dreams afloat.
But now she feels like a remora,
'cause the school's still close at hand.
Just behind the reef are the big white teeth
of the sharks that can swim on the land.

[Chorus]
