1. Details: Blacktip Shark

    Only shark landed of the trip. We had plenty of runs and missed hook ups on much larger fish but that's another story. Kayaked the mullet out 150yds and only ...more had to wait 5 minutes before my rod and reel were launched out of the Rod holder and into the sand. My Beastmaster 50/80 made quick work of the shark and it was safely unhooked, photographed, and released.

    #Contest15 By far the most memorable and rewarding catch of 2015. Many hours waiting and miles of water covered for this Chark. 250yd drop at the color change during ...more the Summer tournament. Great weekend with great people. Counting down the days until next summer. P.S. those who spent the weekend with me I appreciate dragging me into the beach house. P.S.S. does anyone one know Jessie? #COTS

    6lb 14oz female on a bed! Worked the bed for 30 minutes with every plastic I had. Saw her chase a bluegill around the shallows and decided to tie on something of ...more similar size. Slow cranked the Flex Phantom right past her nose and gave it a twitch to make it dive and roll and that was enough to make her angry and she swallowed it. Enjoy everyone!

      Wet it down and test it and I guarantee it could be tied better. It's that shock on hook set that pops the line although I haven't had a single failure on ...more a fish or snag

      @thedevman1 I have not had any issues you just stated about the Vanish. Not endorsing it but that's my experience. The biggest thing with fluoro is the knot ...more strength. If you think your not is good
