Default Apr 22 off of Walton County

a buddy and I put in on the beach in Walton County at 6:45 last saturday. Couldn't find any bait, pulled frozen cigars and artificials. We each had a strong hit with a long run from what we think were kings, but we never landed those fish. I foolishly tightened my drag and popped the line, dont know what I was thinking, excitement got the best of my judgement. That was on a silver Rat-l-trap with J hooks replacing the treble hooks. Was also pulling a cigar minnow on a duster. At one point I thought something large surfaced and broke the water about 4 feet to my side but a bit behind me so I didn't see anything clearly. A few minutes later my buddy saw a shark tail slap the surface near his kayak. About 30 minutes later he hooked a big fish, when it came to surface we saw it was a shark. Dont know what kind, looked to be about 5 ft long, big enough that we had no desire to land it or get close. Had some dolphins take interest in us and get very close, swam directly beneath me several times. We took out at about 1:00.

Worst thing you can see when fishing is dolphins. They will chase everything else away. Sharks can be fun to fight but I'm with you on not getting them very close to the boat.
