They just don’t see toothy critters like these back in the suburbs of Pittsburgh!
Sam Rodgers and his dad, Don, have fished with SeaSquared Charters many, many times. For this outing, Sam brought two of his buddies to the family’s vacation home in Florida Keys for some shark wrangling.
For some reason, we’ve been seeing some really large lemon sharks at our personal aquarium in Florida Bay. Today, they were all six and seven feet in length. These big ones don’t do a lot of acrobatics, but they sure do run fast and far!
The guys caught ten in all, each one giving a 15- to 20-minute fight, and some taking 250 yards of line on the first run.
One of the guys had never been on the ocean before, had only ever caught a bluegill and was deathly afraid of sharks. It was quite entertaining for all of us to watch him do battle with the sharks!
