Josh and Dr. Robert Borrego headed offshore to a shallow water wreck on the east coast of Florida. Josh started off playing with a large congregation of monster bull sharks. Several cobia came up with the sharks. Josh hooked one of the cobia and fought it for several minutes. The cobia was being chased by a bull shark. Josh tightened the drag and palmed the spool, breaking off the cobia. Shortly after the goliath groupers showed up. Josh tossed a bait in the water and hooked up to the first goliath grouper. The fish fought very hard! After a struggle, the 200lb+ goliath grouper was boat side. The hook was removed and the grouper was quickly released. Josh started playing with the groupers and a monster goliath attacked the bonito on the rope (probably over 500lbs)! Josh and Borrego dropped a huge piece of amberjack in the water and hooked up to another monster goliath grouper. This fish pulled some serious drag! Josh managed to get the goliath to the boat. The fish was quickly released.

Shark gets Sharked! Florida saltwater monster Bull Shark fishing in Everglades National Park in this gopro video. Darcie hooks up to a big bull shark, gets out of position and is taken for a ride. Then the shark gets chased and eaten by bigger sharks, incredible footage and action.
I was hunting tarpon, so I had the big tackle with me. There were no silver kings around, so I went after a shark instead. The manatee getting involved was totally unexpected. Turned out to be a good lesson on fighting big fish.
The tale of my experience shark fishing at one of the offshore rigs at Padre Island National Seashore the day before Sharkathon 2012. I caught several fish including a large bull shark that kept me out until after the sun went down. For kayak shark fishing rigs check out www.BigSharkTackle.com.
We were deep sea fishing offshore near Jupiter Florida. I had a bonito on a rope near the motor and 5 dusky sharks picked up the scent and started circling around the boat. I dropped a bonito down to them and a smaller one ate the bait. You can see the shark grab the bait in this video.
