The big one

As a UK snow bird and wintering in the Florida Keys for over 10 years it still amazes me what can happen in the Keys. After a session on on of our Gulf wrecks in Florida bay a big and i mean big shark fin appered in the chum slick, over went the shark rod and with just 80lb line the fight started, after 2hrs 23min, and many miles of being towed we got the fish alongside a hammerhead some 12 to 14 ft long estimated 1000 to 1200lbs. Just shows what can be done on light line, i have used Tufline now for over 10 years and despite try other new superlines always go back to Tufline. Its hard to see the size in the photo but none of my friends would jump in and hold the fin to show just how big this fish was.
