Easter Sharking 04/16/17
« on: April 17, 2017, 10:16:32 AM »
So my girlfriend and I had decided to go shark fishing on Sunday earlier in the week since the surf looked so good, and with Ron's report we arrived to stellar conditions with high hopes.

We got a late start and got to the spot around 6:30PM to small lapping waves, mild wind, and clean water. Got the first takedown around 8:00. Had a hearty little battle and got this 87" male 7.


About 30 minutes later I jumped the gun on a hit and missed. Action was going bonkers for the last two hours, with missed hookups and shredded baits every 15 minutes or so. Finally got a solid hookup around 9:30 and handed it off to my girlfriend and she landed this 74" male.

She didn't want to get close to the mouth so now adopted a strange dominatrixesque pose lol. Well the parking gods said it was time to go, left the fish biting, and the spot is on fire up here. If you're a part of the VC seven group you guys should make a point to hit it soon. Also both males had fully engorged claspers, still?

Glad I got the bats cleared out of that spot for you guys last week.  :D  Couldn't keep a bat from taking my bait before a 7 got to it.  :-\

Excellent job guys!  Ventura County is a special place for Sevengills.  It's amazing how many you guys get in such a short fishing session in general.  I feel like we have to put in so much more time and energy to find one here or two there, although we have got lucky a few times the past few years out here.

Bravo and nice Beast Master pic!
