Coming back from the fingers (south of the vineyard) dumped the chum and leftover bait. Got within a few miles from nomans and a big mako jumps out out just ahead of the boat. Looked down at the cooler and said grab the albacore. Crew said nope so I had had pizza that day.
I wasn't targeting them. Drifting around tuna wishing, whales were in tight so i was in tight. Big poorbeagle...i don't even remember was the bait was. I don't believe that's all that unique, especially for beagles. I fish the 180 line quite a bit and i don't think i've ever fished there without catching a shark at some point in my trip. Usually after dark is when the little beagles start assaulting your gear. I wish it was a one time dump luck thing...i don't like sharks and don't ever target them.
I hooked a white shark about 100 yards off the beach one time fishing for bluefish, dam thing ate my umbrella rig on the wire lol it was a interesting morning for sure. After about 30 minutes I finally got enough of my wire back to cut him loose lol
5’ blue shark 100 yards off 2KR at the mouth of the Piscataqua this past august picking mackerel off my sabiki. I wouldn’t have believed it unless I saw it boat side. I was thankful it didn’t actually hold onto the hook and just stole the fish off the rig. Have to say it’s probably the most unexpected thing I’ve seen in that close
