    Default One Track brings good luck again!

    This one really put the hurt on me. I feel like Iíve been in a bar brawl. Hooked at 3:40 pm and boated at 5:15pm yesterday. All stand up fight. We were way undergunned with just a little Shimano TLD 20 and #60 line. No harness. Kinda dumb looking back on it but it worked out. Weighed 216.6lbs on the hook, was probably 225 live weight after blood loss and a 45 min run back to the dock. Good eats!

    That makes 3 for 3 shark trips with OT. He's got good luck mojo!

    Thresher shark... the top of the tail gives it away (and the photo name).

    Right on. Thresher steaks on the grill are the best. I didn't know the shark fishing down here was that good. I might have to pick your brain. I've never caught Mako or Thresher. When do the Mako start biting?
