Countless small Jacks and Snappers were also released on the trip. It was very windy, but we were tucked in close to the island and a great time was had by all.

Andrew and I picked up Jim, Jordan and Kellsie Shaw and Krista DiCunzelo from Boxford, MA at Sunset Key this morning for a half day sharking. Fifteen year old Jordan wanted to catch a big fish and we worked all morning for just one bite. Jordan fought, captured and released this #300 Hammerhead after a tremendous battle. The fish was hooked in the dorsal fin making the fight even tougher. It was a beautiful morning, we accomplished our goal and a great time was had by all. Tight Lines and Screaming Reels, Capt Ted

Lucas and Annette Howrey, from Iowa, fished with Andrew and I today on the Lethal Weapon. We tried to go Sailfishing but the water was too green and full of seaweed so we were unable to troll. Lucas and Annette caught a couple of Barracudas and we settled down and started chumming at one of my favorite wrecks. We missed the first fish that bit, but here’s a picture of the second. It is a #400 9′ Hammerhead, tag teamed and released by Annette and Lucas. The monster fought for over an hour on #130 tackle before the Howrey’s subdued the beast. Yes, Shaun, we got him turned! Lucas also fought, caught and released a #300+ 8′ Bull Shark. Tight Lines and Screaming Reels, Capt Ted

Key West Shark Fishing

Key West Shark Fishing

David and Jason Ream from West Virginia, fishing out of Sunset Key, spent this afternoon with Frank and I on the Lethal Weapon. We caught our limit of Kingfish right away and rigged one up on the Shark rod. The first wreck we tried was barren, but the second one proved to be a winner. The first Shark stole the bait. The second one hit instantly as soon as we put out a fresh Kingfish and the fight was on. The monster ripped out more than a quarter mile of line and was totally uncontrollable for nearly an hour. The great fish finally got around a deep water lobster trap and the great fish was gone. David, Jason, Frank and I were left in awe as the leviathan swam away.
