Shark Bite!

Went out to the Bight for a bit Saturday. It was slow most of the day but this guy bit a free lined shrimp I had out. I heard the drag start going and set the hook on my first shark. Turned out to be about a four foot Bonnethead.

Best part was I caught it on my new rod/reel. A 7 ft. med-light rod on a Shimano Stradic 3000. It has 20 lb. braid with a 20 lb. floro leader. I was surprised I got it in at all. I had to be gentle with it, that’s for sure.
