I fished today with Captain John Raguso of the Fisherman magazine and Tim Smith of Skimmeroutdoors.com as video and camera man.
We did a light tackle shark trip to the near shore area about 18 miles southeast of Fire Island Inlet.
We had a great time catching and tagging 2 small makos and a thresher shark. The makos were about 50 pounds, and 70 pounds and the thresher about 125.
We caught all on tuna jigging sticks and had a great time. There were loads of tinker mackerel in the chum slick and when they disappeared we knew the sharks were in the chum slick.
A great day of fishing and this will make for a great Fisherman TV show for August.
