5-17-12 Spanish Mackeral and Sharks

5-17-12          What a day we had today!!!!!  Took out some folks from Elizabeth Town, NC and we started off a little slow but we gradually started working pretty hard on the Spanish Mackeral. At one time we had three fish on at one time. Talk about exciting… For the last hour or so we went hunting for Sharks and it wasnt long at all we were hooked up and then another rod took off and we were doubled up on some very nice sharks. At one time ” I Kid You Not ” there were over 100 sharks swimming in a school right beside the boat. Makes you think twice before going swimming in the water.

5-16-12—– Big Sharks Everywhere

Today Rigged and Ready Charters had a half day fishing trip on the beach. The Spanish mackerel and Blue Fish are very thick and we worked on them for about two hours and then went shark fishing. First line in the water and a Black Tip Shark around 50lbs hammerd the bait and ran off 75 yards of line in the blink of an eye. We ended up with around 10 Sharks in about an hour with non stop action. It was really fun to watch as my client was doing battle with the biggest fish of his life!!!!
