Sharksauge Fest 04/12
« on: April 13, 2016, 12:13:28 PM »
With the leftover bait from Sunday and my farming antics Pat and I decided to hit the surf again tonight. The tides weren't the best for a quick session so we decided we were going to stay late tonight. Arrived at the spot around 7:20PM and conditions were looking nice, minimal salad and nice calm 1-2ft rollers at big intervals. Pat gets bit after about 45 minutes and brings in a nice 56" Leo.

Sorry for the crappy censorship. Anyone in the know up here knows where this spot is, but just in case thar be lurkers LOL.
I end up getting my bait stolen constantly through the night and after another hour Pat is on again with another cookie cutter male at 58", and he looks insane lol.

We decide to move down a little to where we have been having our 7 gilled friends play. I continue to get my bait stolen and after another 30 mins Pat is once again on a fish. This time a 49" bat. I was getting discouraged at this point.

Finally shortly after releasing the bat I see my rod bounce and lay the hook in it. Another male leo 57", a nice skunkbuster.

By this point it was getting late and Pat's phone was on the fritz not taking good pictures at all. We decide that the next fish would be the last for the night. We watch as Pat's rod gets played with a little and all of a sudden stops, then my rod doubles over, the surf was washing machine status right at the shore now and this fish hated that. Big long runs, tailslaps, headshakes, I thought it might be a soupie for a few minutes but it was just a big 98" male Seven.(and of course the camera refused to cooperate!)

The blurry maw.

He was bulky as all hell too, could barely drag his butt up the beach. Another nice night to get out and do some sharkin. And it was nice to redeem some of my lost fish to boot! And the strange thing to me was, all the Leos and the 7 were males, it must've been a really lame party for them because all their claspers were pretty engorged lol. Good luck out there everyone the sharks seem to be hungry!

Nice way to get rid of left over bait! That's a giant for a male...98" Seven vs a 78" Soupie for April and we're not even half way into the month, wow, that's some serious competition. Maybe someone will get a 110" 7 or a 96" soupie to make it an easier decision on who get's my vote....
& ya, smart to protect that spot from lurks that might not be CPR guys. Show nothing but sand... it would suck if a few 7s a week started getting taken from that reef as it wouldn't sustain it's population for too long I'm afraid. Let's not let that happen, stay smart. You might have to turn loose that insane psycho bastard, fisherman.pat  :o ;D on any poachers and scare the S out of em so they'de never come back if it ever come to that. ;)

Thanks everyone! The shark fishing seems to be really good this year for most of us. This spot is just wickedly on fire all the time it seems. It's nice and deep right at the waters edge. You have generally small breakers right at shore and right beyond them the water is already at a constant 2-3 ft deep. Come on soupies!!!!
