    I'm sure you've probably read Coach's post the other day about the shark that was pulled in from shore in La Jolla. I just wanted to say thank you to Werfless for helping me accomplish an old dream of mine - to catch a good size shark from shore in La Jolla!

    I'm glad I had you to show me the ropes on how to bring one of these beautiful creatures in from the surf. Not to mention what it takes to prepare them so they taste amazing. I can't believe she turned into over twenty pounds of some of the best-tasting fish I've ever had.

    I've since passed on monster steaks to friends and family and they all say the same thing..."this shark is fantastic!" Thanks for staying up to 3:30a to ensure it was prepared correctly.

    Not one part of the shark went to waste either. The unused parts went into the garden as fertilizer and the jaws are now becoming an art piece as an ode to this apex predator.

    Thanks again Coach! Can't wait until we tackle IV next. Now I just need to spend time and edit the catch and cook for Cast & Spear...I wish I had more time in the day hahaha.

    P.S. Also, thank you to everyone on this forum. I've seriously learned so much from you all in a short amount of time. It's an honor gentleman/women!

    I'm starting to think that I haven't really "fished" unless I've fished with werfless.

    I have a buddy who likes to do marine taxidermy. He told me to make sure to bring him the jaws. He's going to make a video of the process so I can share it here. The jaws are cleaned with ammonia and hydrogen peroxide, dried and then made hard and glued together. I think the teeth didn't say in as he wanted with this one, unfortunately.

    Your willing to help is priceless. For example, your tips about using a long pole on the jetty, using mono whenever possible, etc., etc. are things I wouldn’t’ve thought of myself.

    And then there’re the stories... I still laugh at the ones about your yak light attracting drunken “moths.”
