    Ben, learn to tie a palomar, and loop knot and that will take care of most of your freshwater fishing.

    I use the improved clinch knot for my snaps and swivels when Tuna and Marlin fishing. I also use a palomar knot on almost all my inshore tackle. Just check your drag, any knot will break with to much drag.

    Cary,

    Where do you go offshore out of? I've been out of OI a few times on charters. There is some awesome fishing down there off the coast. Hoping to get down there this weekend and jump on a boat if I can. YFT are really biting.

    I mated on a few differnt charter boats and ran a private boat for a few years out of Ocean City Md. Now I get up there about twice a season, and for the White Marlin Open. I havent been out of NC in a few years but have been trying to catch some friends while they are there. Hopefully this year I can hitch a ride one day.

    Haven't been on the party boats, I mainly do the 90 Street Pier or surf fishing at the east end of Seawall Blvd.
    Next trip, I'm thinking about trying the SLP pier, and a party boat.

    Will

    Only ones that I've caught so far, is small 18" bonnetheads. I haven't targeted for shark specifically, but will start next year. Something in the 3-4' range would be nice, have heard that shark steaks are good. :wink:

    3 foot sharks are good eating but watch size limits. I catch a lot of Atlantic Sharpnose Sharks in that size range. Also bonnethead but havent kept any of the bonnethead. GA regulation isthe small shark size linit is 30 inch and for larger species it is 48 inches with stricter limits on the number you can keep. your states regulations might be different.

    For the steaks you NEED to Marinate them for 12 to 24 hrs covered in Italian Dressing in the fridge. Then they are ready for a grill (on tin foil) or a thick iron pan for searing.

    I also recently read a NOAA info paper on Sandbar sharks. It said they were threatened so I reccomend practicing strictly CPR on them.
