||This was a week to fish the Shark infested waters of Pensacola Bay.
We found a small area around NAVY POINT with a very heavy concentration of sharks
First trip was Stephanie Gillespie of Gulf Breeze, she caught a Reef Shark estimated at 125 lbs.
Her shark was the first and biggest of all sharks caught this week, she caught it on a PENN 930 levelmatic loaded with 15 lb. test line and a live pinfish.
She battled this brute for almost an hour before landing it. She did a GOOD JOB of leading the battle between WOMAN AND BEAST.
If you have ever fought a fish this size on light tackle you would know,
that it's lose line, gain line, and lose more line until one of the fighters is worn out. In this case Miss Gillespie won the battle as the pictures in our photo album show.
|We cleaned the fish and fed the whole gang at Pier One Marina with 30 lbs of steaks left over.
We also kept the jaws as a souvenir for Miss Stephanie to remind her of the awesome battle she had won......
THIS WAS THE ONLY SHARK KILLED OUT OF THE 17 WE CAUGHT THIS WEEK!
The sharks are still here,
Rende Younge caught 4 Blacktips in the size range of 30 lbs.....
ALL WERE RELEASED UNHARMED
Shark infestation still exists in Pensacola Bay,
Kenny and Michelle from Arkansas had their share of sharks with 12 fish RELEASED UNHARMED,
some Reef sharks and some Blacktips all ranging from 30-50 lbs.
The best part of the day was to see some of their Arkansas tackle SCREAMING the blues while a 5 foot shark danced on the surface with their leader in it's mouth.
|All of the sharks caught ate live pinfish on light tackle(20 lb)
except Miss Gillepsie, her shark may have held a WORLD RECORD for women's 15 lb. class but,
we were all too hungry and too tired to think about WORLD RECORDS,
needless to say her fish was grilled and fried and served with fresh ceyenne peppers on the side.
|GOOD JOB! GUYS AND GALS,
