got to the pier about 8:30... pretty darn cold... lots of bird activity and what-not, a sure sign for winter bobo's... i saw some bluefish in the draw, didn't wanna lose my jig so i went to the end and saw 3 bonita already on the deck.... 5 minutes later, i hooked up with one... but JEREMY (JHogue) thought it would be funny to tighten down my drag when i set my rod down, ..so as soon as i hooked up... pop... 4# test + locked drag + 5lb bonita = :banghead:banghead:banghead a few bonita were caught and at 9:30, i was walking off to go to work, i had gone about 5 steps when i see everyone scramble for their tackleboxes and ling rods... i looked over and there was a stud mako on top, all of 8-9 feet, solid 300lbs... no one ever got a steel leader tied on in time, and away he went... definatly one of the coolest things i've ever seen... that's the 7th mako i've seen off the pier in the last year & 1/2:bowdown

BudYsr (12/4/2007)Pretty cool. Did anybody manage to get a pic. of him? I'd like to see that big guy.
i wish... we were all in a panic to get a hook in 'em... i was trying to tie a steel leader, and everyone else was cutting up bonita to try and chum 'em up to keep 'em around.... didn't work:banghead

Great report seeing the shark. But here's my question. I thought it was against the rules to try and purposely catch a shark from the pier. Am I wrong???

it is, but i'll hook it up and freespool and walk until i'm over the beach and drop my rod down and fight it from the beach, i've done it before, and for a mako, i will definatly do it again...

the reason they have that rule is becuase they don't want to scare the tourists off the beaches because they saw a shark.... :banghead
