This video shows the most exciting 10 minutes I have had on the water all year..


Short story - got waved in by a boat (saint) about 15 miles from the domes.. 2 hours of all you can catch YFT on anything you threw, and then a big hammerhead joins the party... Great video from the tuna tower!!

Pretty cool. Shark just wasn't hungry enough, probably been eating tuna and carcasses for days. Either that or he wanted some long pig!

Nice! We were out there in that parking lot about 10 off the domes but we showed up late. Went home empty handed. Still beats being at work

James, how's that bait tank working for you? Plenty of life left at the end of the day?
Honestly, it's the best bait tank I've ever had. We might have had 5 dead for a scoop and a half all day, and they were the 4" dinks...

Nice video, I like it! I did notice something while watching it, however...

Beware:
The last guy to land his fish in the video has a much greater chance of snapping his rod on a bigger fish due to "high sticking" = creating acute angles with the line. It is easy to do -- I've seen it happen and rods these days are way too expensive to lose one due to technique. Glad you didn't; and that you landed some beaut's in spite of some toothy interference under duress.

If you don't know what I mean by "high sticking", then I'll try to find an illustration for you.

I would have to call a high sticking flag on the both of them!
Great job, and great video. The tax man is still angry about you guys.
You were totally getting spanked out there. What lb test were you fishing?
