Took a break from catching bottom fish out in the Gulf of Mexico and has some fun with Carl Rudnik & Cheryl Hopkins of BaitCloud, catch & releasing handable sharks.
We used Rapala R-Type Heavy Duty spininng reels loaded with Sufix832, 65 lb. braid and wire leaders with live baitfish and free-drifted them on the surface over 70′ water.
These sharks may not be big, but they sure fight well and even get airborne. They are lot’s of fun on light gear. We handled all of them carefully and released them.
