Another side story about last Sat, May 15th....I was in Pine Island Sound at 11 AM catching bait for an afternoon trip with The Archey family. The bait slowed down, couldn't catch enough pin fish. As the time to pick up approached I began to motor towards a shoal. In the distance I think I see 2 dolphins chasing bait. As i am driving closer it becomes clear that the 2 fins are on one , BIG, Hammerhead shark. The shark is in 6-8 ft of water chasing a free swimming Tarpon!. It's 10-12 feet long!, the dorsal is 3 ft tall out of the water, the tail is almost as tall.
You can't imaging the power and beauty of the predator as it chased down and killed the Tarpon. It was so mesmerizing that I could'nt find my camera until it was over.
There's always something to see, do, enjoy, around Sanibel Island Fishing.
