We went shark fishing with Captain Bill and 1st mate Jacob on 8-16-2016.  They made our trip very pleasant and enjoyable.  Bill told us that on his last trip that they caught 6 small sharks.  They put out the shark bait and we waited.  The fist one that hit must have been a big one as it broke the line.  Then came the next one we landed and it was all hands on deck trying to get him to the boat.  After a lengthy battle, (you will have to watch the video on Sweet William III’s Facebook page), we were able to get him to the boat and he was about a 7 foot Bull Shark.  It was quite an experience catching something that large.  Unfortunately, he was the only one we landed, but that’s fishing and we had a great time fishing on Captain Bill’s boat.  I hope all your other trips are exciting for the anglers waiting to got deep sea fishing.

Thanks for the great time.  John, Cathy, Joe & Sherry
