    Well I just got back from a family vacation in Florida, where I caught me a Hammerhead shark while surf fishing. He sure put up a good fight, and was released back to fight another day.

    Pictures are poor quality as the camera lense was fogged and the sun had not came up yet.

    Jim: Nice job, looks like a good one, They are fun to catch and fight realy good. They always amase me, just looking at them makes you really think.
    I have cought some in the 4 to 5 hundred range and they are work. I understand they can get well over 1000 pounds, now that would scare me. LOL

    Congrats

    I was fishing in the surf with dead squid. I hit the surf that morning at about 6AM and had the shark caught by 6:15. It took about 7 minutes to land.

    I was just fishing in the surf for anything that would bite, and was by myself that morning as the others decided to sleep in. I caught snook and ocean catfish too, but got lucky on my last day and caught the hammerhead.

    The fishing for the first half of my trip was lousy as tropical storm Alberto raged through.
