  1. Sure is, hey Sam this is a multi state tourney, so I don't know if you want to leave these reports here or you can just move it to where it is appropriate. Here is my weekend fishing in <st1:place w:st="on">South Florida</st1:place> report: after not getting a single bite the first time I went out and we tried it again, we put the baits out, we got one hit and one hit only but it produced a nice lemon. It was not the biggest lemon, but a nice one. As you can see on the pics she had been mating, she did not fight much at hook up so I thought it was a nurse shark, but then she peeled some line and felt her power but on the 14/0 it was just crank, crank until she felt the sand and all hell broke loose. My drag was hammered to the max and having no one behind me to hold me down, she took a surprisingly fast run back to the ocean and pulled me in the air making me fall forward and making me eat some sand LOL. ALL in all it was alot of fun until the noseeums came out in full cloud forces. Thanks Mark, family, and friends, it was great fun fishing next to you. All was ok <o:p> </o:p> I thought she was under control when then by surprise,ZZZZZZZZZZZZZMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM BAAAAAMMM! I eat the sand, look at the line in the sand, that's from my rod,LOL <o:p> </o:p> Brad and Mark helping with the landing <o:p> </o:p> The overall length of the shark, it was 8'6" but a very chunky one. If I would have gone over the hump and lowered her tail maybe a few inches more. <o:p> </o:p> Brad and I pulling her back in the water to release her (notice the tag we placed on her top side) <o:p> </o:p> Brad reviving her, very carefully he helped her regaining her strength, great job dude...
  2. The 2009 Shorebound Shark Tourney started with a small bull and the curse of the nurse for most teams, but it picked up by a unique catch from a female junior angler with an immense ray, although not a shark it was without a doubt an amazing catch by a junior angler.<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Several tiger sharks have been caught, tagged, and released and several nice lemons have also been caught tagged and released, this includes a nice sized lemon caught by team Black Bart, they released the tagged shark which appears to have mating bite marks (very common this time of year), the shark was then caught by Team Old School whom removed the tag and placed another one in it’s place. This goes to prove that the sharks are released very healthy and that land based catch and release really works. <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Here are some pics:<o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> The small bull that started the tourney<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> The ray<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p>Team Rip The Lips with one of the nice tigers<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Team Black Bart with the Lemon<o:p></o:p> <o:p></o:p> <o:p> </o:p> Team Old School recapturing the same shark <o:p></o:p>
  3. Captain’s meeting: There will not be a physical location for a captains meeting, we will do all of it online. Secret item: The secret item will be announced on Tuesday June 30th and it will be posted on this same thread. Forms: Please send the forms by mail. Tags: The bonus points are for the sharks you tag at the moment. We will need the tag numbers you have available on hand, and we will need a close up photo showing the tag numbers. In the event that you receive more tags from the tagging program then we will need the additional tag numbers and a picture of them. This way we will know when and if you have used all your tags. Team members: We want to know who is on what team. We want you to e-mail us or post a picture of your team members. If you e-mail us a picture of your team members we will post it for you. We want this to be a fair tourney and do not want teams multiplying out there. You must post a photo of your team no later than July 1st and include each of their first names in the post. You do not have to be together in the picture we just want to see their faces and know who you are. This is something very simple to do. Example of tags picture is below:
  4. Thanks Steve. Oohh yes this is shark candy. This was in Channel #5....I have caught sharks to 9 feet from those bridges mostly on cudas. I use a 9/0 a 12/0 and a 14/0. I use the cuda in chunks of about 12 inches (smaller sharks will take a tiny chunk and go about their business the bigger ones will just take the whole bait and will make that reel sing a beautiful symphony. I use wind-on leaders and #19 wire with an 11/0 hook. When caught I bring them closer to shore and cut the line as close as possible to the hook.<style>- /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:""; margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} --> </style><!--[if gte mso 10]> <style> /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} </style> <![endif]-->
  5. I am a shorebound fisherman and love going for big fish but don't mind catching the little ones. Last weekend I went for bait and caught a nice barracuda. I love catching them and i use them for shark bait. I catch them using my home made tube lures and or store bought plugs. Below is the one I caught from a bridge in the Florida Keys -------------------------------------------------------------------------- See you at the 2009 Shorebound Shark Tourney
