Location: 
Fort Myers Beach, FL
Date Caught: 
Saturday, January 3, 2015
Notes: 
I don't know how it failed to cut the mono leader until after I'd landed it, since it sliced through immediately after. It was really hard to hold the fish with one hand while getting photos with the other, but I had gar gloves in my pack that gave me the grip I needed. Wish I'd taken better photos of the whole body but it never stopped fighting for a second. My first shark. This one fish made the whole trip a huge success.
