Matador Charters Fishing Report

2nd big shark of the day

Friday July 13th 2012 - 15:00 AM EST
Added by: Jake Hiles

Normally, I wouldnt put up two half day reports for the same day but we had a second large shark with good pictures so I decided to make a second report. In the afternoon we went right back to the same old spot and put the chum out. Didnt really invest much time in fishing for the mackerels at all. We set up and immediately had the small blacktips and spinner sharks there to play with while we waited for the big bite. We didnt have to wait long. About a half hour after setting lines, we had a solid hook in our second large shark of the day. This one turned out to be a seven foot long hammerhead shark. This shark had been hooked on a longline rig in the recent past and had the rig dangling from his mouth. We removed the rig and our rig too and safely released the shark where he was captured about two miles off the virginia beach oceanfront. We continued catching blacktips and spinners for a while after that and didnt have another big bite. Two release citation sharks in one day. Very good inshore fishing right now and we have plenty available for charter. Give me a call at 7577496008 for booking reservations or availability. I will be offshore the next couple of days so if you try to call me during the day and dont get a hold of me, leave a text message or email and I will get back with you as soon as I get reception. Thanks, Capt. Jake
