Default Bottom report 8/8 9ft nurse shark from the yak

After kayaking for 10 1/2 hrs yesterday and 14 miles I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to get up this morning but I did and had an epic battle with a huge nurse shark while fishing for snapper & grouper. It towed me a 1/4 mile and felt like I hooked a bus. I've never felt like giving up on a fish before seeing it, but glad I didn't quit. Tyler & I estimated it at 9ft while next to my yak - it's head was ginormous! The pics aren't real clear but I'm sure you can get the idea...Tyler got broke off many times but managed to get 3 nice gags out, I didn't even get a pic of the biggest one. also some keeper trigger.
