Shark Fishing with Manson’s Boys

June 5th, 2009 by admin

Here’s a couple pictures of the sharks the boys were catching the other day. One of them took Trace’s pole and he dove in and got it and back out in about 2 seconds. Not much later they saw a 7 foot shark go by!

    Heh. I remember fishing for Pompano off off beaches from Marco Island and up to Captiva. We would put out a few hundred yards of “stab” net and go from net to net picking them up to clear and then putting them back out.

    Every so often we would come across a half shark with only one bite taken out of it. Usually the half we pulled in measured anywhere from 3 to 4 feet.

    Sometimes we would catch the culprit. Usually a 12 to 14 foot hammerhead. It would roll the cork line right down to the lead line and be tangled in about 100 feet of net if it got caught in the net at all.

    My favorite catches were when we set “wing dings”. A couple hundred yards of seine net we left out over night then pulled up on the beaches in the morning. You could usually count on pulling in a shark anywhere from 6 feet (usually a bull, black tip, shovel nose, nurse, or some such) up to about 14 feet (usually a hammerhead) and this was in water shallow enough to wade in.

    Don’t think all the big ones are in the deep water. You would be surprised on what is in the wading water too.

    The Grammar and spelling used by Justin From Fort Myers in no way reflects the rest of Fort Myers Grammar an education.

    I agree Bubba Rocks, however, I am from Naples so generally my education and grammar far exceeds those from Ft. Myers.

    I live in Cape Coral and Im not from this area originally, but most people here are retarded, so his grammar and spelling makes total sense.
