Default fishing...not catching

went out east of Portofino last night for some shark fishing. met up with Don(ugly1). learned some stuff but didn't catch much. my buddy got a blue runner. got some cats and lady fish. had a whiting that I kept from a previous trip out on my 9/0. about 4am when I was passed out in my chair and my buddy and don were in the trucks sleeping I wake up to my 9/0 screaming. after tripping in the sand for about a minute trying to run to it I finally pick it up, wait another couple seconds and start tightening down the drag. shark starts slowing with the tighter drag, then stop, about 5 seconds later another huge burst so I thought he realized he was hooked. started cranking down and nothing... kept reeling(clearing grass every 5 ft) got to my trace, and half an Atlantic sharp nose was hooked right in the corner of the mouth...I guess you can imagine what happened. I don't know why the pictures wont show up.

Neat. Ran out of bait today and couldn't catch any damn thing else to use so was wondering if I had kept a shark and put some chunks out if that would work.

yea sharks bleed a lot so some shark cut bait would be great. I didn't even know that atlantic was on there. there was so much sea weed that it had the line weighed down to much to even get slack.
