You don’t always have to be out on the water to catch sharks.
Warning: NSFW language.
It was quite a fight when the bull shark is finally hooked. The angler fought the first shark for 10 minutes, but it threw the hook.
The second put up a 30-minute fight in worsening conditions, crossing a jetty and forcing the anglers to scramble over rocks.
For gear, the anglers used a Penn International V rated 50-100 pounds rod with a Penn Squall 50vsw reel. The line was 100-pound braid, 100-pound mono with a leader of 5000pound mono crimped to 500l-pound cable, and a 16/0 circle hook.
The bait first used was filleted Spanish mackerel, but the huge bull shark caught on the video went for the larger grouper carcass.
