I know we've all seen better photos of sharks on the Discovery Channel...but these shots are taken from the boat, above the water, and I'm not getting in the water with these critters for any reason, so they'll just have to do.
Wayne spotted two of them up in shallow water and I threw a lure at them. This one followed the lure almost back to the boat but then turned away at the last moment. He swam off behind the boat where I just happened to be drifting a pinfish on a bobber. He grabbed it.
There was a huge explosion of water when he hit the pinfish and then as the circle hook lodged itself in his jaw he made a spectacular leap completely out of the water...and headed for Cuba. But the Daiwa reel did the job of stopping him and after several more runs and about ten minutes of fighting he came to the side of the boat.
Wayne got him on the boga grip and up for pictures. We then towed him in the water at the side of the boat until he regained some strength...and he swam off.
In can take up to ten years for these propscars to fill in with new growth.
