I was fishing with my son last July at Panama City Beach, Florida with the wonderful Captain Brain Jacquay. We were pulling in Grouper and Red Snapper. My son hooked at six foot Bull Shark. That was exciting in itself but later is when the other exciting experience happened.
My son had a Grouper on his line and something bumped it. I was pulling in my fish at the same time but I didn't know what I had yet.
Then all of a sudden Captain Brian said, "Start reeling faster if you want to keep your fish!" There was a 12 foot Tiger Shark right next to the boat. We were in a 26 foot boat.
We all looked down at it and said, "We need a bigger boat!"
We had a wonderful laugh, a great fishing trip, and kept four nice size Grouper with some White Snapper.
That was the BEST fishing trip I have ever been on in my life! Thanks to Captain Brian.
