  1. For you guys out there that target sharks from the surf...do you flatten out the barbs on your hooks?... if not than what do you use for dehooking? Anything out there better than a big pair of channelocks? Also what size hook would you use for a sandtiger? I use 10/0 VMC nemesis hooks on my shark rigs...I've been using them for years, and have caught plenty of small and medium sharks...are they too small for a sandtiger?
  2. went out to 3r's last night at the walk on, we had nine lines in the water between the 6 of us, we caught 2 sandbar sharks between 3-4 feet long, and i beached a bohemoth butterfly ray, i will try to get some pics up when i can...the ray was not what i was hoping for but summers far from over and there are plenty of sand tigers out there..north of 3r's i saw guys yakking baits out and after the sun went down i saw alot of headlamps going near the water i bet they had a monster on... will try again in a couple weeks

  10. Washed up whale in Del. had fractured skull - wtop.com [video=youtube;k0mDuAZaoNQ] FENWICK ISLAND, Del. - A necropsy of a 50-ton female Fin whale that washed ashore on Fenwick Island Friday afternoon found the extremely decomposed whale had a fractured skull. Marine Education, Research & Rehabilitation Institute Executive Director Suzanne Thurman said Monday evening that the multiple fractures indicate a ship probably struck the 61-foot, adult female whale. MERR, a non-profit organization that works to conserve marine mammals, conducted the necropsy after heavy equipment pulled the whale from the water about a half-mile north of the Fenwick Island State Park. The Coast Guard first spotted the whale Wednesday morning about 4.5 miles off the Delaware coast. Thurman says her group waited to see where the whale would land. MERR cordoned off the section of the ocean where the bloated carcass came in, keeping people from getting too close to it. Members of the group answered questioned as curious people came to take a look at it. Thurman says heavy equipment will be brought back in Tuesday to bury the whale. This is the time of year that whales are traveling along the East Coast. Roughly 30 species of marine mammals and sea turtles can be seen along the Delaware coast every year. While it's unusual for dead whales to be found along the Delmarva coast, this is the second one to wash up this month. An 11-ton, 31-foot-long humpback whale carcass washed up at Ocean City, Md., March 13. A necropsy of that whale found its skull had been fractured, most likely by a ship strike, says Cindy Driscoll, veterinarian for Maryland Department of Natural Resources.
