    Almost drew my gun Friday.

    Was offshore on the Gulf Friday Grouper fishing. I thought I had hooked a record Grouper. What I had was a 7-8 foot Nurse shark I'd estimate at 100-150 lbs. The Nurse's are reported to be the tastiest of all sharks. The problem was, if we gaffed him, my buddy wouldn't have been able to hold him or pull him into the boat. We discussed shooting it. The shark settled the debate by tiring of playing with me and just swam away snapping my 80 lb. flurocarbon leader like a piece of cotton thread.IMG_1155.jpg

    Awesome catch! I love feeling the burn in my forearms whenever something big is on the line.

    The old guys are tough as shoe leather...and not near as tastey or fresh smelling.
