Has anybody caught a salmon shark in the Seward area? I was trolling there last Saturday and hooked into one about 6' long. We had the typical double hook setup with cut herring on at about 35' on the down rigger when something took it. My grandson took the pole and started reeling it in. When it got part way to the boat all he!! broke loose and under the boat it went right between the other pole and downrigger cable. I took over to get it sorted out thinking he had hooked into a good king. After working it a little I got it back close to the boat. It came to within about 15 feet of the boat right at the surface and we got a good look at it in the water. At that time we decided to stow the dipnet and get out the harpoon. The fish got a good look at us also and went off on another run. After what seemed like a couple of minutes of back and forth between me and the fish, I got him to settle down. I was holding a light tension on him while they got the harpoon ready. About that time the line went limp. He cut the line with a tooth just in front of the hooks. Oh well, it was a riot while it lasted.
