Clik on any pik to enlarge:

Friday night's sunset.

Wayne with a very nice Spanish mackerel which he turned into Sunday night's dinner for the four of us.

We got into sharks big time...hooked maybe six of them.

This shot's out of focus, but it gives you the idea of how rambunctious these fish can be when hooked.

Better focus.

Fish is probably a spinner shark...so-called because they barrel-roll while airborne.

We were drifting live bait and chunks below bobbers.

Photo shows the lovely color of one shark's dorsal area glinting in the sun.

Wayne volunteered to help land this shark, probably a blacktip, that I'd managed to get to the boat.

Not a job for the faint-of-heart.

WE'd lost a couple of fish at the side of the boat before getting this one aboard.

The shark's business-end is nothing to mess around with.

A quick picture, circle hook removed, and then sharkie was released back into the water where he's undoubtedly eating everything in sight.

What was left of the blue runner sharkie hooked up on.

• Bluefish in the Surf

“Anything – literally any lure – will catch these bluefish. When they are in a feeding frenzy like this, they strike anything close to them that moves. Surf anglers stand on top of their beach vehicles with binoculars watching the surf in both directions, looking for a school of feeding fish. Once fish are sighted, these specialists run the beach to the fish, hop out and begin casting to the frenzy.”
