Thanks a ton for the info really.
I figured most of that was true already, but you confirming it makes it special.
The numbers you posted are incredible, I knew someone had to be successful out there as pkentiful as those buggers are. It seems that Charleston has many more than Southport NC area where I did my prime time fishing, probably the warmer water and the larger tide cycle meaning more current, which sharks seem to love. NC has a (4) ft. tide cycle vs. (6) ft. Charleston. I have not grown accustomed to this current yet, makes sense that the BOTTOM of the cycle is most productive.
CUT LEADERS, what leader and main line are you ysing, if you don’t mind giving up that info, cut leaders have never been much problem for me?
Last year, Grandson and me both had huge boys on offshore, we had to really FORCE the action to break them off, his unintentional, mine was intentional. We were using braid tied directly to the hook, which you can get away with offshore, probably not inshore, need to know your rigs at least please.
When I was primarily a King Mac fisherman, the wire leaders did the trick there, BUT I used very light wire, so the big boys still kinked and broke the wire sometimes. I understand you paid the dyes to be successful, I did in King fishing too.
The shark situation is so different with the strict limits, and the massive numbers of sharks available though, plus not many shark fishermen since you can’t keep many to eat, so many are released.
Appreciate very much what you did share, the limits protect your info for sure.
