Despite difficult conditions, this group landed two large lemon sharks!
While we were on vacation in St. Augustine last week, John Larkin contacted us to book a shark fishing trip for his group: John and his son, Trevor, along with Scott, Chelsey and Erik Long, all from Rochester NY.
Shark fishing had been blockbuster right up until the heavy rains the Keys experienced over the weekend. For some reason, these conditions always put the sharks on alert.
There were plenty of them around the boat, as usual, but they were reticent to take the baits, to say the least. We got three of them to bite – all big lemons at about 7 feet – and the crew landed two of them.
