Commentary:I vote photo shopped. Whites prefer colder waters - luckily :eek2:.
In the 80's, I used to fly a guy and his wife out to the Bahamas to go fishing on the weekends on Green Turtle Cay. (He didn't want to learn to fly his plane...said it cut into his consumption of Johnny Walker Red)I don't know Skip...we had a ten foot hammerhead spool a 130 that was rigged for giant bluefin...made the reel look quite insignifcant. Back in the seventies I was in Hawaii and a big white ( I think it was white) had scared the folks in their dingies rowing to their sailboats in the harbor in Lahaina. The local boys caught him one night...they used chain for the running line and goat for bait! The hook was the size of the head of my flying gaff. I am not s**ting you.
We had a huge one on off Cudjoe a couple of years ago, it was nearly as long as the 15 Whaler we were in. Our "plan" was if it started attacking the boat was to drive up on a nearby flat Turned out he snapped the line quickly and left quietly.Man that is scary....Glad others do the research...I had a 10 foot hammerhead hooked for about 15 seconds a few years back off Stock Island...It ate the 4 foot 'cuda I was reeling in.. And the 15 seconds was all it took to spool the 6/0 penn I had...cujo
