    This bull shark was probably around 300 pounds - caught the second day we were here. Sport fish have been slow, but lots of grouper, snapper and shark this trip. We're in a transition period down here.

    Found a saltwater pond with cobia. There are a few of these deep holes in the coral throughout the Keys. Some have gators. Really cool micro environments. They are inland and separated from the ocean.

    Lookdown on a swimbait. The 3" Storm WildEyes have been killer on ladyfish, lookdowns, jacks, cuda and had a tarpon hit, but didn't get a good hookup. Pearl and shad have been the key. I haven't gotten anything to touch the chartreuse version.

    Lots of blacktip. I'll take blacktip and spinners over other sharks. The aerial show they put on makes up for the pain in the neck it is getting a hook out of their tough skin. I have managed to get the hooks out of all the sharks except 2. The large bull was a little irritated and I was avoiding close mouth contact.

    It was 85 degrees yesterday and dropped 20 degrees today, so I stayed in and did a little work on the computer. Heading to Homosassa Friday. Hopefully we'll get on some reds.

    Nice photos JP. Will try the small shads next trip. Funny you had no luck with the chartruese -- usually my goto color. My best luck on the look-downs was a 1/16 or 1/8 oz white marabou jig. Go get em!

    Great pictures! I like the looks of that yellow lip gripper you're using. Who sells it and what's it called?

    That gripper is actually made for catfish, but makes a hell of a saltwater tool - and cheap to boot. I haven't broke down and bought a good set of Boga Grips yet.
