Shark Catching Adds Excitement

Kurt Freese, his wife Sheila and their daughter Cara, along with Sheila's cousin Scott had scheduled a back country fishing trip on The Anglers Mark so we met at the Atlantic Seafood dock Saturday morning and made a run up to the Jolley River to fish the first of an incoming tide.  Both Cara and Kurt picked up some hungry Seatrout then Cara had a strong bite, her rod bent over and the drag sang!  FISH ON!  She played the fish for a while, then Kurt joined in to help subdue the big Bonnethead Shark.  Boy, that will wake you up!  After fighting another shark, we move on up the river, made one stop and had no bites, but at the next the anglers picked up a couple of hungry Seatrout.  Fishing outside of Tiger Island, Scott found a couple of feisty Redfish feeding over an oyster bar and Cara pulled in a coupe more Trout.  At our last stop, Kurt had a good battle with a nice Redfish, one that just missed the Slot by an 1/8", OUCH!  But it was a good battle, a good fish, and with that, we called it a day, another great one to be out on the water!
