Last Thursday we went to thre end of the North Galveston Jetty in the afternoon, and we landed a couple of decent sharks, and lost several other really big ones. One was a huge bull shark that was hooked by the tail and broke off right at the side of the boat. He had taken a nice sized live ladyfish. After dark, we dropped a small submersible light in the water, and in a little while, there were a lot of ballyhoo around the light, but after about an hour, the water on that side of the boat was just boiling with millions of frenzied shad. All we had to do was put landing net in the water and scoop up a net full of bait. The only question is, in a case like that, how do you get the fish to hit your shad out of all the millions of others? We just put a weight on them and sent them to the bottom as far from the school as we could get them, and we did get a couple hits like that, but are there any tricks to getting the fish to hit your line when there is that much bait right alongside the boat? Should we catch some bait and then get rid of the light to make the swarms of baitfish go away?
