A fellow fisherman used my cast net to subdue the shark enough for me to grab its tail and pull it out of the water.We quickly proceeded to take a couple pics,measure her,and release her safety. My girlfriend filmed the whole thing and I am thinking of putting it on YouTube since its not everyday I go catching +150lb sharks from land on 30lb test powerpro.I will post pics later on when I have a laptop available to me.(I post from my cell phone).


Well done man, nice shark with light tackle.

I believe it.

Lemons are right up with nurses for the worst fighting sharks...pretty much reeling in a log that shakes its head every so often.

Impressive catch though either way :toast:
