Default Okaloosa Island Bulls

After taking a beating from the weather and the fish gods on our last couple trips Lowprofile and I headed out for some payback! It was raining when I arrived but no lightning and great surf conditions. We ran baits out about 5:30 and by 6:00 LPs 12/0 was singing! After about 20 minutes of fighting everyone in the resort behind us hit the beach to see the big shark get landed. After taking a beauty of a tail whip to the arm we got the hook out, measured and tagged her and safely released her. The crowd cheered as the 6' 10" Bull shark swam away. About 2 hours later my 9/0 goes off and the fight is on! I was warned by LP that I had issues with my reel when I returned from dropping my bait so I was concerned that it might not make it through the fight. About 20 minutes into the fight the reel locks up and I am backing up the beach to try and get the last 200yds of line in. After a couple big head shakes and a good tug the shark breaks the reel free and after a couple trips up and down the beach we get the 2nd Bull landed. After a couple mug shots she was released and the skunk smell was gone! We did not measure or tag this one but I have an 80" reach and she was close to that. This week end it's back to trying to catch our first hammers! UGLY

Thats awesome! I am really hoping I will get to post of a pic of me with one this weekend. I lost one right at the lip of the surf two weeks ago. It was the closest I have gotten to landing a nice one.

There has been two sightings of a 7-8ft. Hammerhead less than 50ft. From shore in the Sandestin area. One of those sightings was today with the other 8-10days ago that I saw with my own eyes. Both sightings during this daytime.


I work On the beach behind there.

i was out there early this week, i think Monday, and watched a 6-7fter cruise the first bar. no bait on me. i was looking for rays and hard tails. you might have seen me with an 8ft, 30lb class rod and saltist 40 throwing a big sabiki with a 6oz torpedo on the bottom. i was in a pinch.
