Lol. Isn't TFT shark not a by-catch, but a major shark species? Ain't no one knocking that off the list.

OK, The June Contest is here!!!!!

Couple of questions about -Shoreline based caught only.  Rod has to be affixed into a sand spike on the beach or bay shoreline.  No pier sharks/rays.

1. Does this mean yakked baits are allowed or is it hand cast only? Yes any method to get a bait out there, as long as they are a legal species you are targeting.  A non-legal species like a BSB or any other protected species by the DFW rules would be classified as Bycatch for this contest

2. Does the sand spike have to actually be in sand? We have a spot that has a wooden deck and a rock retaining wall that run parallel to the water. You gain no casting or distance advantage fishing from them, getting to the sand is safe and easy, and you have to land the fish on the sand. We fish from those vantage points because it lets us get more of our lines out of the water/salad and makes it much easier for people walking along the beach to walk under the lines because it's a pretty narrow strip of beach. It's not like you're fishing from a rock jetty. You are good like that.  This is to make sure that the quarry could be released unharmed so that doesn't effect meaning of the rule.
;D

With the surf conditions this weekend, we're going to try for threshers from shore at a double top secret spot.

But realistically we're resigned to the fact that we're probably going to show up, take a look and head to the bay for a bait making and beer drinking trip ;D
Anybody have an emergency beer?

Bring a tape and a camera.  This contest is a "Shoreline Based" contest, so catching a Leopard and bat ray might put you in the lead for 2 positions.

My wife and kids are super busy with VBS this week, so there's no chance I'm getting out.  I might give it one last ditch effort on Saturday night if somebody knocked me out of the lead though.  ;)

I'll be surprised if someone catches a shark bigger then 91" by Saturday. Make sure to bring lots of bananas for your boat ride with Tom.   ;)

The shark board is a fishing trip for one on my boat (all gas and ice included). The bat ray and Leopard winners will be a grab bag of things that I need to sort out.  I know you and Mike offered some things up, but I still have some SWAG from earlier along with soft tape measures and stuff.  I didn't get out to rally the prize wagon like I hoped.  I'm just hoping the second half of 2018 treats me better than the first half of the year as it's been one thing after another. 

The pelagics are starting to bite, so this is perfect timing for you (or the winner) of the shark list.  8)
