Shark Fishing in South Carolina!


As I had never been fishing before Andy and I decided to do something different and book a fishing  trip!

It's a great way to see the creeks and do some dolphin watching too.

I didn't know what to expect, fishing to me sounded boring, boy was I wrong, it was soooooooooooooo much fun!!

This is Shem Creek.

So many fishing boats. 

We saw some dolphins too! It's so hard to catch them on camera as they jump up out of the water so fast.
It was boiling hot with calm seas.....perfect weather for fishing....

We had a local fisherman pro with us to show us how it's done. He was such a laugh and even had his own show on the discovery channel, so we knew we were in good hands!

With the baits in the water, he placed 4 rods in holders to wait for action.....

We waited for about 5 minuets, chilling out and listing to some tunes, when suddenly something started tugging on the line! Whooooo!

One of the lines stared to shake! Yesssssssssssss we got one!!!!

We started reeling in the shark...........................well, the guys did.

On light tackle, even a small shark can put up a tough fight.

I was pretty terrified as I have a huge fear of sharks.

These were just baby sharks but they are vicious and their eyes look evil!!

Then we caught another one! I wanted to hold one but I was too chicken, they were deceivingly strong and kept wriggling around!

We threw them back in the water after, I did feel a little sorry for them but them apparently it doesn't harm them.

The bait for the BIGGER sharks...................

It was such an awesome experience and I would recommend it to anyone who has never gone fishing before, it's a real rush when you catch something and you can feel it pulling on the line. I can see how it can be addictive and competitive!
Plus it's great for tanning too ;)
