Fishing for Sand Tiger Sharks

OK fellas you have waited long enuff. i hope shes all you thought she would be.

well we got to the beach at about 8:00 i got the rigs baited and yakked out just past the bar wich was only about 75 yards out. well what happond next mad history for me about an hour later click click click just realy slow and then the line went slack so i just reeled like hell and then there she was so i ran up the beach and set the hooks . as soon as i set up on her i knew this was the fish of my life just stupid heavy and the head shakes, oooooooo god the head shakes. well i played the fish for about 10 minuts and then bump gone .  The hooks pulled and i was pissed. so i just thought GREAT why wouldent the hooks pull i mean hell thats how i knew it wasent a blacktip because if it was i would have caught it.  Anyway i still had another bait out so I desided to just let it sit. so me and justin were just drinking some “sodas”  . and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz she just went. so hooks set and it was on and this fish felt even bigger than the first one. well this fish gave me hell up and down the beach. she ran like hell at me and away from me by far the best fight i have ever had yet. well about a half hour later she was on the sand and i had my first NON BLACK TIP. YIIIIIIIIIIIPPPPPPPPYYYYY. it was a nice sand tiger i mean this thing was fat as hell. we didnt get a good lenth on her because by the time she came in we were like 400 yards down the beach. but you guys can see from the pics she wasent a small fish by any means. i would say like around 7 or 8 but still my biggest landed fish.

so here she is

mabey not the biggest for some but i am so proud of this fish for the first time i fell like i am getting somewere.

ok but thats not it heres the iceing on the cake. so after we caught the fish and got her back in and swimin i yakked out 2 more baits. when i got back justin was on the phone with DEAVER. so he handed the phone to me and we were talking about the fish and zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz sorry deaver got to go fish on. set the hooks and ooooooooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmy god this fish was HUGE!!!!!!!!!. It was the first time i have ever hooked something i just couldent do anything with. it just went as hard as i tryed it wouldent go anywere i wanted it to it just waned to go off shore. now i had just beached a 7+ fish not a half hour befor and this thing was much much bigger. well sorry to say the hooks pulled again. i will never fish a mustad duratin hokk again but hay i wasent mad at all i got what i had come for.

thanx to every one on the site for there info and for being good friends. you all made this fish posable for me. thanx
