I was out this evening wading a local reef and doing some catch and release as usual. I've been catching some solid fish lately on Corky Devils so that's what I was throwing.
I had already caught two trout and a skipjack and all three did some tail-walking. I cast upwind and upcurrent, let the lure settle a bit, reel up some slack and I'm hooked up again. I'm thinkin' "man, this is fun" as this four pound fish comes up shakin'. I play it on in fairly quickly and it's inside rod-length. Then it happened. This big shark blows up on the fish and as I lunge back screaming like a little girl it tail-slaps me almost knocking me down.
Now I've surfed and fished my whole life and been chased out of the water by sharks before but this was just to **** close. :eek:

Man I love fishing from my boat! No stingrays, no sharks, no vibrio, no jellyfish, just cold beers and tasty sammiches! Glad you're okay Kenny. And I really do get why you wade, just makes me wonder how much of that kinda stuff I could tolerate.

Ya know. While your out there (well me anyway) I don't think about it. If it happens it happens. But I don't worry about it, and usually I'm so consumed by the chunkin that I don't think about it. Hopefully I will never have to.

Kenny. glad your okay. That might just scare me back into the boat.lol :rotfl:

I can't belive this thread, screamed like a girl, you shoud have dived into the water with a knife between your teath and taken care of that shark, that's what I would have done.

Kenny great to hear that you are ok. I think all of my fishing equipment would be up for sale on ebay. Heck maybe my boat too. lol That might have scared me off the water period.

i thought you were gunna take your big pole next time. sounds like that local reef is now thier local reef. i know i could scream like a little girl in a situation like that, even with a barritone voice.

if i would have been with you it would have sounded like a good opera.

I just don't think I would deal with that well. Sounds scary to me. I have been bumped by solid critters before and I am glad I never saw them.
