And a bonus barracuda!
Despite a couple of scheduling changes, Darrell Diemer, from Mims FL, finally got to catch his trophy shark!
Darrell saw our show on the Travel Channel and was hooked on the idea of catching large lemon sharks in Marathon Florida Keys.
So, he called and booked his trip along with his stay at Captain Pip’s Marina and Hideaway. We got out today after a rain delay, and Darrell certainly was pleased with his experience.
Stormy days have a tendency to make my pet sharks a little on the shy side. We did have several around the boat, but they weren’t feeding aggressively.
Darrell first hooked into a four-foot, 35-pound barracuda that gave him quite a fight.
And then he got his shark – a seven-foot lemon that he battled for 25 minutes.
I guess his comments sum it up, “Great trip – loved it!”
We’re glad you did, Darrell, and look forward to having you back to try your luck with the tarpon!
