Stizo' Blacktip Shark in the Rain

Had to unhook it quickly because we had pressing business with another shark if I remember correctly.  No time for pictures!

All of my sharks were smaller

All of my sharks were smaller which was awesome!  Big sharks take up lots of time and are difficult when trying to hold up a 5-8 foot meat grinder!  We had a larger 10-12 foot bull shark make a pass right at our boat after we had just put on fresh bleeding meat on the chum stringer.  Watching that thing come in on us was surreal.  Makes a guy sit down in the boat to ensure you do no slip overboard!

Bullshark

the bullshark did not stick around.  It made a right turn from about 50 yards out, made a fast advance on our boat, got close enough to take your hand off, made a left turn and swam away out in front of us.  He would have been fun but lots of time and work involved with a shark that big.  Glad I got to see it and glad he did not stick around.

Sounds like a pretty cool experience Stizo. First run in with a big shark?
