Shark Fishing In The Florida Keys
Planned for this trip for about a week now. Got off of work at 4 hopped in clay's truck and headed to the key's got there around 8ish p.m. I had a big baracuda in the freezer i took with me down there. Right when we got there the current was going the right way so we quickly rigged up the shark rod's and deployed bait's. I ran out a 9/0 senator with a back half of a cuda. (since my recently my big shark reel duel12/0w got stolen...) Not even within 5 minutes the reel is screaming i did my hookset and it was on took me down to quarter spool having to angle the fish to keep her between the power lines was the tricky part. After about a 30 minute fight we get her straight up and down and seen it was a big bull so we snapped a few pics and let her go.
Up next is Lane's 130 VSX to go off. We are sitting down with a half of a big jack out and all of a sudden we hear a pop then the big 130 starts rolling fast we lay into her and it's on pulling really good drag and surging back and forth between the power line's. Fight was on for a good 30 minutes or so until we got her straight up and down another huge bull shark.
Tide end's up flipping and everyone put's the baits out the other way and hopes for some more big bulls are around. What do u know we hear a 130 slow rolling down the bridge we go over lay into the fish. It's on.... we thought it was a big big big shark in the current ended up being a big 8'4" bull we walked this one down the bridge to get some good pictures. Clay got the last one of the night.
