About 5 minutes into trolling a herring at one of my hot spots I landed a fair king, later I saw fish on the bottom and dropped the rig and landed a cod, I moved off the edge and hooked another king, this one was giving me a better fight so I imeidately got concerned about sharks, as soon as I let slack in the line as I was moving the rigger out of the way it came unbuttoned!!! After cursing and stomping around the deck I sent another herring down and no sooner than I got to the captains chair I looked back and rod was strait up in the air, kelp? then the rod moved and I killed the engine and grabbed the rod and felt a heavy fish(world record king? is this it? I thought), then it tugged, tugged and up came my flasher with the telltale curly cued leader, like a shark had it. I;m riggin for shark on my next trip out.
check out the leader and the teeth marks on my flasher!
