water temp was mid 80's and clear. The first charter we spent out in Wassaw
Sound . The weather report called for 5 to 10 out of the southwest, but
it was more like 20 out of the northeast. The 4 guys enjoyed and wanted
to catch some sharks, so they were in luck as some of the biggest bonnet
heads of the year seemed to be schooling. We kept 3 sharks and 2 trout.
second trip started at 11am, so we fished the bottom of the tide and some
of the incoming. We did catch and release some sharks, kept a couple trout
and got into a decent redfish bite to end the trip. These were inshore
reds and were still on the short side of legal. We probably released 25
or more. The second picture goes with this report. The shark opend up
his mouth and had to be released quickly , so the picture does not show
the entire shark.
