Shark Fishing In Charlotte Harbor

This is why we don't attempt underwater tarpon fishing, as seen in the post below, here in Southwest Florida.

This is a five foot dusky shark that ate a five pound bluefish I was fighting near Burnt Store Marina. I'd estimate the weight of this shark at over one hundred pounds.

Note the dark water. I never saw this shark until it came blasting up under my bluefish. He was part of a pack of at least five other sharks that were wating for a good target in the school of blues we were working. The food chain is very unforgiving somedays.
