Click the link and then click "Screaming Reel" to view the video. I fished surfside today and was going to video myself landing a shark, but the shark took me down the beach and while I was about 30 yards away my other rod takes off. I lost the big fish, but landed the first one.

Hey Frenzy, that sure looks familiar. The same think happened to you last trip we went together. Your reel was haulin and then the shark turned towards you and cut the line....

But, yeah man, only 7 more days till we hear that sweet ole sound again buddy.

Stringer,

Haven't been to the beach since Memorial Day. The first video with the CCR music was great to watch. The reel screamin' made me miss the beach life like crazy. What a great sight. Keep those videos coming. For us guys far from the beach, the a great break from the mid-day duldrums.

Most 3-5' sharks I catch really don't put up that much fight. The longer rod you see me put back into the rod holder before I pick up the rod getting the run still had the 4'5" blacktip on it in the wade gut. You can see it wasn't fighting all that hard. Even though I only had the rod in my hands for a few seconds I could feel the power. I would guess that it was 5-6', but who knows maybe larger. Thats whats so exciting, you never know what you've hooked into. It was definitely the largest fish I've hooked into at Surfside!

It was defintaly worth the 40 minutes it took to download. Kinda makes me teary eyed thinking of what I probably missed out on this weekend if I had gone fishing instead.

You can dry your tears.I met Stringer at the same spot today and it was sargassum as far as the eye could see. :cry: Could not keep a line in the water for 5 minutes. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :mad: :headknock :eek:
