    A doctor in key west caught a 385lb lemon shark on a fly rod. Not fishing for sharks, the beast took the fly and he fought it for an hour. The shark wasn't pleased and bit the boat. Broke a 40 year old record.

    Cool story! You said he broke a 40yr old record--did he also "break" a 40yr old boat?!:lol:

    And I thought catching a crappie on a ultra light was fun. Bet this was a blast.
