I had a great call this morning from Albert Zertuche, manufacturer of EZ Fishing rigs using a Breakaway Z1 rod with an Avet 80 EXW who landed, tagged, and released a 12ft 6in Tiger Shark. Albert makes shark rigs that we sell at the shop and he consistently catches big fish on them. His well proven rig and sinkers keep him busy but he still finds time to fish.
The bait used to catch the shark was a 15lb Cownose paddled out by Jeremy Long and was dropped at 600yds. Albert said the initial pick up was slow but he soon realized he was into a monster. Two hours later he was able to walk the shark down the pier to the beach. Albert said he has plenty of film which I will post next week once we have it edited.
Great job Albert
