It is an elite club when you can say that you caught a Great White from the surf. Incidental catches like this are not common while fishing for the more common bigger sharks of SoCal, but they have been increasing in frequency over the past few years.
Here, P-Soul member Chris (aka Pierfisher) shows off a Great White he caught off the beach in SoCal last week. This is only part 1, as he is writing about part 2 for tomorrow in which he caught and released a much bigger one. Be sure to stop back and read about that story when it gets posted!
Big props for the quick CPR of this majestic shark. It’s only going to get more frequent with encounters of these big beasts as their protection and the removal of gill nets has increased their population from over the last few decades of protection.
