    on 10-12-11 I went surf fishing on Jekyll Island Ga and I caught this sandbar shark while fishing with my SX MC. I was hooked up for about an hour and she took me down to the bottom of the spool 5 times running up and down the beach. I was very pleased with the performance of my reel during the battle.

    My annual Sept/Oct charter on the Intrepid, produced this 70#+ yellowfin.... one of two I managed to get past the sharks at Alijos rocks.. Caught on an HX, 50#, flouro leader. THe sharks took about 9 of every 10 fish hooked, but a few slipped past to ride home in the RSW.

    We boarded the beautiful M/V Islander on Sunday night, October 22. As required by current Mexican regulations, we cleared customs in Ensenada on Monday morning, and spent a day running to points south. We hesitated offshore to warm up on smaller tuna on Tuesday, and arrived at Guadalupe Island on Wednesday morning.
    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" /><o:p></o:p>
    Captain John Conniff toured the coast of the island, hoping to be able to put us on a drift (generally less favored by the local population of great white sharks), but there were no fish to be found off the shores around the island. He settled on a spot, and dropped anchor.
    <o:p></o:p>
    Anticipating a day of holding a rod and reel, I chose my lighter 40# outfit. Our seminar the night before had stressed bait selection, as it did the next morning. I tossed out a first sardine, reluctant to swim under heavy hook and line. Meanwhile, another angler hooked our first big tuna, only to watch it lost to a shark, returning only a head! Already, there were several circling us, the larger probably 15 feet long.
    <o:p></o:p>
    Rejecting the first sardine, I chased a second in the well for a couple of minutes. It was big… and fast. I finally cornered it, nose hooked it, and gently tossed it behind the boat.
    <o:p></o:p>
    If I’d counted, I would not have made it to 30. Line ripped off, and I slid the lever to “strike”. After two runs that both nearly spooled me, and a run under the anchor line, my fish was the first to make it to the gaff, past the sharks already hounding our fish.
    <o:p></o:p>
    Of the 32 fish we hooked, only 5 were landed!!

    This one took the jackpot.

    Me and a local fishermen towed rapala magnums on a small watercraft fishermen use here in the Philippines called a banca, the fish hit one of the two CD14 red head and with the boat I was on being small, we got towed a few hundred meters but the fish was landed in less than 20mins.
