Big Bull Shark Caught Offshore


We went offshore fishing on Nick’s boat accompanied with Guy and Pete Barrett from Barrett rods. After trolling for a while we stopped and started drift fishing. All of a sudden we seen a dolphin shooting out of the water and Nick’s spinning rod started screaming. A few seconds later my Duel 12/0 gets slammed! Nick lands his dolphin and I continue to fight the shark. It turned out to be a bull shark, estimated around 300lbs. The shark almost bit the camera when we were filming. If I had not hooked that shark, Nick’s dolphin would have been attacked by that bull shark.
