Wow, that's incredible.

And I know exactly one charter guy in Miami, and it's Bouncer. Small world.

Any guesses on the shark? Looks to me like a Great white.

I catch blacktips on topwater in the surf here but this would give topwater a whole new dimension.

Bouncer looks like he lost a few lbs



Maybe not

After just seeing the shark launch that high, I don't think I would have been hanging over the gunnel.

There's nothing crazier/scarier than a mako that ate your bait and starts to jump towards your boat...they aren't afraid to come to you at all.

Was on the local news here Friday(?) nite. Fish was caught by one of 5 local guys down there for a "50th" birthday bash.

One is owner/agent or part owner/agent of a pretty large real estate company based about 3mi. from me. Not sure if he was the one that caught it? It should be in our local "county paper" next week for sure.

Very cool!

Regards,
