Default Big shark problem.

The last 4 weeks ive lost 4 topwaters, countless jigheads, and a few jerk bait weedless setups all due to small sharks! And most of this is in the sound and a few in upper escambia! We need a shark neighborhood watch or something or just get a bunch of people to start shark fishing to make some sort of dent in the population, ive fished here for years and have never seen it this bad!

I caught one as well and lost my $9 topwater just outside Sherman cove in 4 foot of water.

I had one sky about 3 feet in the air on my topwater last week. I've never experienced that before.

I will be at my honeyhole in the sound tomorrow with my shark rigs. Hope to help cull the population... ;o)

Don't forget, there's a minimum size limit on many shark species now. Bone up on the regs if you haven't looked at them in a while.

BigD, are you still whining about that topwater lure. You got your $4.50 per throw out of it.

We were into sharks all day today offshore. I brought 2 up to the yak. Yakntat brought a few up and Ginzu did too. This pic is the small one. The other was nearly 6 ft.
