Goliath Grouper Turns into Tiger Shark!

Recently on a Goliath Grouper charter we ran into some tough conditions and a slow bite. I began trying spots that I don’t normally fish in hopes of making my client happy with his first Monster Grouper! Finally after much failure we got a bite but it seemed to be fighting a little different than usual. As it came closer to the boat I realized this was a Tiger Shark! The fight was challenging but trying to safely remove the hook from its mouth became even more of a challenge!

Tackle used: Okuma Makaira rod and Makaira 50W reel.
