My BIL just caught this nice Dusky at our place in Florida. My jobs were hold the rod while he roped the tail and make pics. Pretty fun stuff!

Great picture. We don’t see many reels that big in NE Texas ... or sharks for that matter. Thanks for sharing. Looks like a great time.

Haha me too. What’s neat is my wife (his sister) saw the fin as he approached and said, “I think you’re fixing to get a bite!” smile

Yes. We didn’t think to get a photo of the number before we released it though.

Not sure about Florida, but you cannot keep Dusky's in Tx. They are protected. Catch & release only.

One of my favorite grilled fish..."Bluedogs" caught off San Diego...usually accidental catch while fishing for tuna, Albacore, Yellow-fin, Big-eye...but we always kept 1 or 2 blues when they showed up...grilled with a little garlic butter...poor man's swordfish steaks

We have a place there and will probably spend a lot of time there when I retire. My wife is already retired (school teacher).

Fought an 8ft Dusky on an offshore charter trip on a snapper pole for an hour with no fighting belt or chair. Captain said "it's either a shark or a huge grouper" Finally got it to the surface and saw it was a shark, Captain came over and said "I've got some bad news, that's an endangered species and we have to release it" When the deck hand pulled it up along side the boat the Captain got an approximate length and said it was probably 300lbs. Biggest fish I've ever caught.

Caught a 400 ish pound bull shark out of Galveston............I don't go in the water much unless I see dolphins.

NP.................GD man, just retire. the beach and montana is the way to go. Sell the TX place at the high price now.


I walk the ‘Killing Fields’ while dabbing on sunscreen and marveling at the wonderful rhythm I make as the skulls crunched beneath my jack boots listening to the bee gees Night Fever. Man how I glowed back then. Give ya warning.
