The little pier was crowded, wind blowing hard in our faces, the bay was choppy and rough.I managed to get a spot to cast a croaker out. Another guy caught two small sharks. After 1 1/2 hrs I changed baits, a half of blue fish.(head) I was about to wrap it up and head home when my 9500 starts screaming. I lean into it, and the fight is on. It heads for the bridge and almost spools me (400 yrds of 25lb test) I managed to make him turn, by this time reel is sounding sick. 40 min. later we get to see the monster bull. I am wore out. I would have never got a pic of this if it wasnt for the expert leader holding and lasso abilities of Konz, Yankee and his son, crazyfire, and other pier friends. The shark was given to friend,cleaned and is gonna be dinner(s). I will post pics later today.
