I took the day off to get some rest and relaxation and also do a little fishing. After a violent storm last night, we awoke to a cool morning and I quickly got our boat ready to head out into the deep blue water. Everything was ready so I headed down to a nearby creek to catch some bait. Despite the heavy rain the night before, the creek was full of nice sized shrimp. I caught around 5 dozen and then we loaded up and headed down to the river.
We stopped at a favorite spot and settled in to catch some fish to eat. It was still cool and the water was calm but little did I know about the terror that lay just below the surface. I tossed my line out and sat back to catch some rays when suddenly my drag began singing and I knew I had hooked something large. My wife handled the fishing pole because I was half asleep and soon we had a shark up beside the boat. I released the shark but he wasn’t the only shark around because we caught one after another. Finally I had enough so we moved to another spot.
Several minutes later we were fishing again and soon we were bringing in actual fish (not sharks). We caught numerous drum, a flounder, some croaker, several red bass and a trout. We kept enough for a nice meal and released the rest. But soon the sharks found us again.
I wonder if sharks practice catch and release?
Have a great day,
