sharks

Got to watch a few sharks, lemon shark and one hammerhead, get caught in Ascension Bay, out from Punta Allen, this past April.
First one got hooked as a buddy was fighting a cobrara snapper on his fly rod and Mr Shark ate it. His partner cast a plug at it and the fight began. They spent the next couple hours catching sharks on plugs and some bait. They were in the panga near us and it was fun to watch. None of us had heavy enough sticks to try the flyrods.
I have seen two sharks on the flats of west Monomoy. One last year, one this year. Don't know what type they were, but both got my attention!
Cheers,
Rooster
