More Sevens and a Week Late 03/20/16
« on: March 21, 2016, 08:11:58 AM »
After getting the text and seeing Ron's report me and my buddy decided to hit the grounds again since they have been so good lately. Another short session from 5PM to 10PM, Surf was up but definitely fishable. We had a nice overcast going too which seemed to switch the sharks on much sooner than sunset. About 45 minutes in I get a tell tale bite and it goes slack I try to feverishly get up the slack but he got away with my bait. Another 20 minutes later my buddy has a real screamer, I see it in the waves and saw a huuuuge bat ray. He taped out to 56" I don't know why he didn't show up for the bat fight lol.

Oh well, next year  ;). About another 40 minutes later I get a  gill to stick but he managed to roll himself off the hook. I worried I'd be having another night of lost fish. Rebait and recast and 15 minutes later I'm on, with glorious aerial displays. The shark would burn through one wave to come smashing out of the other end just going ballistic. He had a pinkish hue so I thought at first I had a nice soupfin, but seeing the tail I knew what he really was. A respectable 84" male.

Definitely the hardest fighting 7 I have encountered. My buddy then gets a good hit but like my first was unable to get to the rod to make it count. About an hour goes by before my next stick but again this 7 was able to roll the hook, on for about a minute then nothing. My buddy then gets his shot at redemption about 30 minutes later and managed this 64" male.

High surf again this week but it was a good few sessions while it lasted, and I'm sure they'll be there when the surf dies again. And hopefully this spot will produce some Soupies in the Summer!!!

Damn, I knew I should have made the trip last night again. This weekend is looking great up there. If the surf holds for this weekend, I will be up again.

Yeah sorry Ron. My phone gets no reception at that spot so I didn't get your text until after we got into Ventura. We shall slay them some more!! Ray make a trip up here someday, this new 7 spot is the shiznit, each night if every bite was landed we'd have 5 shark nights!

I'm starting to realize these 7s are all over VC

There's a healthy population of them as well

You'd convert as the soupfin fight 10x as hard as any seven.  8)

Well, well, well.... you guys are crushing it up there.  Have your buddy sign up on the forum so I can make them count on the Shark Leaderboard!  I'm going to try and get a donation from a shop for the biggest surf shark of the year off the beach... to members only.

Well done once again, and if Ray goes up there to fish... be sure he has a tough time fishing.  There might be something in it for you if he catches no Seven's or Soupfin.  LOL 
(You have brought out the competitor in me Ray!!!!)  lol
You can't catch them from your computer chair.

LOL, some nicks in his line when he's not looking should keep him from landing anything.
Sorry, Ramone.
