finally got to fish <acronym title="Assateague Island"><acronym title="Assateague Island">ai</acronym></acronym> in the off road zone ,just not the way the rest of you do.

took my boat out the <acronym title="Ocean City"><acronym title="Ocean City">oc</acronym></acronym> inlet and headed south about 20 miles? took me 1 1/2 hours to get where i wanted to get to ,about half way down the orv zone . anchored about 1/4 mile off shore. i'm sure some of you <acronym title="Assateague Island"><acronym title="Assateague Island">ai</acronym></acronym> guys had to have seen me and laughed saying look at this nut. spent about 4 -5 hours fishing and caught 40 shark ranging from3' up to a monster 8 1/2' ,i think its called,sand tiger.

most were in the 4'-6' range. was in 30' of water chumming and using fresh bunker. used up 25lbs of them.

tried this new braided stainless leader 50lb test ,that was supposed to be for shark and other toothy fish, still only got in 50%of what i hooked. they bit through that with no problem .

wanted to stay longer but ran out of leader ,100'of it, and the 25 hooks i had .

got some pics that i'll post soon as i get them on the computer. not many was hard to get them out there by myself.

thanks for the tips they really helped out there.

if anyone can tell me what kind of shark they are , i would like to know

I haven't seen a Chark for a week, forgot what they look like, LOL!

Might be a Dusky.

Try using #12 Malin hard wire, it will hold up well.

Do a Haywire twist to the hook.

That's about where I paddled out to to drop the baits.

But it took me 15 minutes, not 90, LOL!

Glad you stayed in close Don, especially being alone.

Sounds like a fun day!
