    Had a really fun couple of hours of shark fishing yesterday. Started the day off fishing Spotted Bay Bass and had to work for the 20 or so we caught. Spent the last few hours shark fishing and we didn’t go more 10 minutes between bites. First two fish were nice sized Leopard Sharks, one around 4ft and the other just under 5ft. Few smaller shovelnose and bat ray before we get a good bite that proceeds to peel off a couple hundred yards of line. Had to pull anchor and chase the fish down before we got spooled. 1/2 hour of give and take and we finally get her to the surface. First glance I thought it was a giant leopard shark but as we get it to the surface I realize it’s a big Soupfin Shark! Didn’t bring her into the boat but estimated around 5.5ft and over 50lbs. Just another reminder that you never know what you’re going to catch in San Diego Bay!
