awesome catch and RELEASE!!! There seems to be more of these so far this season than years past. Good for the ANGLERS!!!!


Jim I thought about you when I saw this. How many hammerheads do you catch on your charters vs other species? 1 out of 10? 1 out of 20?

I’m glad they are coming back. I’m guilty of eating one back in 03 or 04 when it was legal.

Great Hammerheads very few. Only caught 4-5 in years....best one about 11 Ft the summer after the oil spill.. This is more than likely a Scalloped hammerhead. Can't tell from the picture, the scalloped have become pretty plentiful. Last fall we got 4 in one trip, about the size of this one here.. I know a area they seem to congregate offshore, I call it the HammerHole... (reserved for special anglers... I don't go there very often...) 4 so far this season from the boat, in 5 trips.... 2 in 1 trip....

An awesome catch for these anglers.... one they will remember for the rest of their lives... hammerheads are cool...
