Surf Fishing For Some Sharkies!
As the week goes by the weather and surf report looked great, green water to the sand and flat water all weekend. As Friday came i was ready to head out and go fishing, but school was getting in the way. I packed up Thursday night and was ready Friday morning. I Just had a few things to take care of, i signed in to my class and decided that fishing was just a bit more important.
I left class and started to hit the road it was long drive ahead of me but i knew it was going to be worth it. Three hour drive later and I finally hit the beach it was stupid calm and water clarity was insane, for Texas at-least. After another 30 minute drive down the beach i meet up with my buddies and instantly as i showed up he was reeling in a southern stingray around 20 pounds. I wasted no time and knew i was supposed to start fishing instantly. He let me have the southern and i ran it out whole. i got ready and started to paddle.
I was going to put 3 baits out but with the amount of boat traffic we seen i decided to only run one during the day, so i made it count. I put the southern out around 700 yards. i spent the next couple hours fighting boats off from our line. As a boat passed by my rod began to scream, I thought he got my line but my line remained straight as the boat headed down the beach.
"FISH ON?" i was confused i harnessed up and instantly locked it down, it was heavy and lazy. Didn't pull an inch of line but i knew it was a good fish.
The fish tried to put up a fight when it reached the sandbar, i locked it completely down and turned her head. The 200 pound bull buster put the smack-down! my buddy went out to leader it, after de-hooking and taking a few pics we released a healthy 8'1 female bull. Not too shabby for Texas waters, YEEEWWWWWWW
