For those of you wondering the reason for the HUGE gap in posting, it is because my job transferred me out of the area. Certainly my wife and I did NOT want to leave the
Panama City Beach, FL area
and believe me, the news really took the wind out of our sails.
However, we are somewhat settled in Tampa, FL now and getting our minds back on fishing but we are at a crossroads. We have several choices:
1) Ask for more participation
from YOU fishermen in Bay County to submit your photos and comments to us. (This has always been our goal, but few participants)
2) Expand our area to Tampa and other areas
3) Let this die on the vine, what was a really fun endeavor while it lasted
Your thoughts are appreciated at

Fishing Report 06-02-2013 St. Andrews Bay
Niece Macey Charboneau from Missouri was in Panama City Beach, FL for a round of SHARK FISHING! What she caught was a 4.5ft Bull Shark, which took about 30 minutes to wear him enough to photograph. Whenever they see the boat for the first time it inevitably turns into another RUN!
Of course this is exhausting work for anyone, but at 12 years old, she did an amazing job! Look at that game-face! Fisherwoman for LIFE!
Thank You Jerry Leirer for your assistance with the shark wrangling.

Got out about Noon, lots of rain but no fish until I hooked this King about 4:00. I didn't bring my cooler so I took the fish home and don't know if anyone else had any luck.

The mission was shark fishin. Daughter Grace caught this nice black tip. Sharks were hammering the bait, spooling Shelly and biting through 44# steel leader. Had
to break out the 400# cable to get the job done. We were surrounded by sharks, while we watched people in pleasure boats, pulling tubers. Wow!
