So today 9/13/15 I went to the west beach inlet to do some fishing. I got there around 9am or so and had a nice north wind and beautiful water. I was about waste deep on the gulf side and catching blue and lady fish, just kinda messing around. I spot a big (6' or bigger) bull shark heading east and about 50 yards out.. Okay no big deal, I wont bother him and he wont bother me. Well I subconsciously continue fishing while watching him swim around the surf a few times. Without thinking I set the hook on a lady fish and the shark hones in on my location. So I am backing out of the water, watching the shark and reeling in a wounded fish. I get the fish and am vigorously trying to get the hook out when the bull charges at me. At this point I am panicking, I jab my rod at him a few times but I don't think my Kistler did any good. Luckily he wasn't that hungry and I annoyed him enough to swim off. I got the lady fish off the hook, threw him back and got out of the water. I went and met some friends a few miles down the beach and saw two more through out the course of the day. With that hair raising day, how do yall deal with the sharks when surf fishing? After it was all said and done it was a little more unsettling than I like.
