Default From nothing to something

Went out past Portofino with my wife yesterday. I brought the kayak and all my gear but I wasn't sure what we would do. We started to surf fish with live fleas but no takers. Then we see ladyfish smacking all over the surf and I tie on a jig head with a grub and bam.. First time catching anything on an artificial in the surf. I hand the pole to my wife and she starts slaying them, she probably caught and released 5 in 5 minutes. The one I caught i hooked onto my big rod and reel and kayaked the bait out (more for practicing my surf launches). After about 20 minutes my 6/0 is absolutely screaming. After about 15-20 minutes I got a nice blacktip ( I think) on shore. Snapped a quick pic and released him free of injury. Thanks to the guy on the beach who helped release him. Saw a sea turtle, sting rays, caught stuff in the cast net from the surf, caught fresh fleas, caught fish on artificial bait, caught my first shark completely solo. Add to all this that I didn't dump the pro angler not even once on 3 launches and re-entries, yesterday was an AWESOME day at the beach with my wife!

That picture is cool. I dont know if you did some editing or used a filter to give it that aged look, but I like it. You should show that to people and tell them an awesome story about how you caught that shark with only your hands and a turkey neck or something.

Thanks everyone, we had a blast to say the least.
Timeflies- while the regular picture was bad ass, I filtered this so I can't take full credit. And as far as my family in Jersey is concerned, I wrestled this beast onto the sand with nothing other than my bare hands!

Lowprofile- is this more to your liking? This was last summer though.
The shark I caught yesterday was mighty active on the sand so I figured I better keep my distance. Now shoot me a PM so I can get on some fish in the kayak wit ya.
