Sharks and Snappers

Sharks and Snappers

Today we started off fishing for Snapper but were really focusing on our surface lines. Weather conditions were great for Sailfish and Tuna. 30 minutes in a surface line went off and started to fight very funny. After getting the fish to the boat 25 minutes later we saw it was a nice 6 foot Hammerhead. The bottom bite was slower than what we wanted so we made the decision to get on the move and slow troll live Ballyhoo. After an hour or so we only caught 2 Bonito so we made another change to our plans. I anchored back up and used the Bonito as bait and chum to hook some monster sharks. Not long after putting some Snapper in the cooler for dinner we hooked two sharks. The first one was a beautiful 5 foot Blacktip Shark. White fighting that we connected with a 9 and a half foot, 300+ pound Lemon Shark. After a 50 minute fight we got her to the boat too.
