I caught a 7'6'' Great white shark while vacationing at the Outerbanks. I can't figure out how to put pictures up yet so you can see them at my blog. I am a youth leader. See the post titled "I Caught a Great White Shark" The link is below and has pictures if you click on the shark.

I also landed a citation Bull Drum. I was kayaking out beyond the second bar and dropping fresh mullet on an 18/0 hook with a 15' leader. I was fishing 100lb. braid on a Penn Senator 9/0 reel. My whole family helped bring the fish in. Leave a comment on my blog if you enjoy the post. I will try to figure out how to post pictures. Until then enjoy and keep those lines tight! :mrgreen:

Awesome catch sounds like you put in the time and were rewarded big time. I know almost everyone on this forum is jealous of your awesome catch!!!!

It's a carcaradon carcharias. It's a great white shark.

Back home we got a taxidermy man. He gonna have a heart attack when he see what I brung him.

I'm not talkin' 'bout pleasure boatin' or day sailin'. I'm talkin' 'bout workin' for a livin'. I'm talkin' 'bout sharkin'!
