  4. well after talking to a few bait shop guys down in obx and finding out pretty much all there was to fish for was small fish, I decided to just do up a shark rig ...more and fish for sharks in the surf :) Had a few rigging tips from a buddy, but other than that pretty much did this one all on my own; it was a rush! thankfully my wife got a good picture cause she sure as hell didn't help me land the shark or go anywhere near it hahaha
