hey, it catches fish. and puts 6oz plus a hand size chunk of lady fish past the first bar without me getting wet.

being 6'6" it looks a little more reasonable when i use it.

Nice fish. I've been catching a ton of lady fish lately maybe I'll use it for bait as well.

that's a great reason . I was just curious how someone thats 6'6" came up with that.
How far out do you think that sand bar is? Iknow around here,johnson beach,perdido key, It's tough to even get to the bar with a good size bait.I can get small ones out there,get a catfish almost every cast.

i can cast the baits 80 yards, sometimes more and just make it to the drop off into the gut.

pretty awsome shark fishing,like seeing the pics, keep em coming.
your passion for sharking is kind of infectious. startin to think I would like to targert them more. doesn't seem to be any shortage of them around here.
back in the socal days I fished for leopards,shovel nose and rays. It was agood break from surf perch and corbinas. a lot of people thought we were nuts for wanting 13' foot rods and diawa sloshes for surf fishing. just wanted to feel that good hard pull on the rod.
