Surf Sharkin with a YoYo

Finally got me a blacktip off south beach with the yoyo. We went 2-4 on sharks up to 100+ lbs from 7-9am. We we kayak blue runners out just past the sandbar. Fight time was 9 minutes and the tackle used is in the video description. Tight lines

    Makes me look unsporting with my International 50. Next time I'm gonna snorkel out with a runner in hand and tail-rope one.

    Thanks. The lifeguards didn't say anything that day but joked about having to close the beach now. We've caught so many lunkers in their faces that we pushed our luck and now they threaten to call the cops if they see us sharking.

    Is it illegal to target shark off the beach?

    No, but we can't technically fish there. They usually just tell us to leave when they show up or rather we start packing up as they get there. We have been hooked up when they arrive a few times and they watched us land and release the sharks. I'm guessing they don't want the bad publicity of sharks on South Beach.
