The Catch
Grouper (Goliath)
Shark (Bull)

Mark joined us all the way from Texas and wanted to hook up on some Florida fish!  We started the day bow fishing for sting rays, a sharks & grouper favorite.  He caught a 7 foot bull shark right away, not a bad way to start the morning. 

Next he wanted to try to hook into a goliath grouper, and boy did he!  The fish he hooked hung him up 3 times before he could pull it out of the structure.  The 600lb line did its job, pulling his catch out.  It was filled with other hooks and leaders we removed before release.
