Today, I caught the largest shark that Dewey or I have hooked out at the Jetties. Remember, we use medium heavy rods with 15lb test line. The drag started screaming and there was no way I could do much but hang on and hope he stopped. About 45 minutes later - I had a 6 1/2 to 7 ft Black Tip shark next to the boat. He was huge - I was absolutey bushed. They took this picture of me after I fought the fish.
Here is a link to the video of the fish. It will not work with Mozilla Firefox - but will work great with Explorer.
