7 Year Old & a Lemon Shark
Aiden my son and our junior angler, had yet to catch a shark over 4 feet. We had talked about heading over to find him some Atlantic sharp-nose or some smaller black tips. The water is very HOT and I was wondering if we were going to be successful, especially since we were kind of on a time crunch today! We netted some fresh bait and set up three shark rods around the boat. Now its a waiting game. We amused ourselves while waiting by getting Aiden to bite a head off a fish for good luck, well I guess it worked! The rod in the back starts screaming, I pick it up and set hook to notice well this is slightly larger than a blacktip! Aiden handled it like a pro! Fighting his first big shark with the best crew around! After about a 15 min fight Aiden lands a 6 foot lemon shark, pretty impressive for a 7 year old!
