Matador Charters Fishing Report


Sunday August 04th 2013 - 15:00 AM EST
Added by: Jake Hiles

On saturday we were fishing inshore on a half day as we normally would. We were fishing near the cape henry wreck when another charter boat very close to me called out and said he had a huge great white in his chum slick. The great white hung around for a long while and he called me over and asked if he could use a larger rod and he did not have one on board his boat. As I was coming over, he comes back onto the radio and says he has hooked the great white shark on a smaller rod, but the shark was solidly hooked up and they commenced to fighting it. I hung out nearby hoping to get a glimpse of the shark as they fought the shark for almost an hour and a half. The huge shark towed their boat straight out to sea and eventually the shark figured out it was hooked and freaked out and charged their boat. It came boatside long enough for the mate on to grab the leader and get a technical release on the fish before the huge shark broke free and swam away. In all of my years charter fishing in virginia beach, this is the first time i have ever heard of a great white hooked on a hook and line and the first one I have ever heard of being around during the summer months.
