Default Blacktip at Navarre Beach

I went to Navarre beach this morning and watched a kayak for over an hour getting closer. Finally the guy came right through my lines getting to the beach. I looked and one rod was bent over. I asked if he was hooked up and he says yes to a 5-6 foot shark for the last 2 1/2 hours.



I drug his yak out of the surf and followed him down the beach to be ready to help. After another 15-20 minutes he handed the rod to me and waded in to try to land the shark. No good, I fought it for another 15-20 minutes before it gave up and headed in. After a fight that lasted over 3 hours on light tackle we landed a 6' 11" (tip of nose to tip of tail) 120#+ blacktip that drug Adam 2 1/2 miles out and three miles down the beach.

Oh and I caught a whiting

Thanks guys. This one took Adam's gaff away from him early in the fight when he tried to land it by himself.
