OK I get a call from my buddy Brian from Gusto IV hey Chris headed out sharking on Wed with a small charter can you come along & help out?? Sure Pal my pleasure.. We head out of Shinnecock on the Gusto IV with Capt john Hyland & Brian and there charter Octivia & Leonora. set up at 8:30 on a very slow drift with light winds & sunny skies water temp was a cool 59 degres we set 3 rods out with the normal baits, start jigging for bluefin while we are drifting constantly hooking up ( with dog fish )AGGHHH. well enough of that jigging but to late the doggies followed our lures up & now start attacking our baits with avengence. As we keep pulling baits away from them & thinking about moving I drop a bait down that was already shredded up by a doggie & BAM the reel starts screaming & I mean screaming off Brian sets up on this fish & sets the hook FISH ON!!!! Shark on top of the water not jumping but thrashing all around after a 2 Hr fight we sink the steel into a nice THRESHER shark. After securing the big boy on the swim platform we start chasing the Bluefin tuna that was busting on top of the water the whole time we were fighting the shark. No hookups on bluefin even though we saw them coming out of the water we decide to head back to the barn. We weigh the Thresher in at Oaklands marina for a whopping 294 Lbs & over 12' long. WOW what a day out there & plenty of meat for everybody.. Nice fishing with you Brian and your fares.. Anybody that wants to go fishing on a really nice boat & great crew call Brian Hyland GUSTO IV Sportfishing Charters. www.Gusto

If skinned and cleaned properly and in a timely manner it's great.
For me there's nothing I can compare it to, but i'd rather have a thresher steak than a swordfish steak

Thanks Chris for posting this and for your help. There is no way I would have gotten the fish to the scale with out your help.

One other note the largets fish primary angler has landed was a 15 pound striper and a 36 inch halibut. All he kept saying was you only see this stuff on TV!

I will post more photos on the shark board when I get them.

Excellent, Chris, way to end the sharkin season upup! Plenty of steaks to last you through the winter Shades!

Flukehunter, if you're looking to get offshore, but can't get a crew together, keep an eye out next season in the Charters forum here on Noreast. There is always someone looking for someone to fill in on a trip, or you can try to set a trip up yourself. Also watch the Offshore forum, sometimes guys post trips, both charters and private guys looking for crew to share expenses, there also.

I'd love to Chris, thank you very much for the offer Shades. Weekdays are usually tough for me though Roll. Either way, hope you get another one, only about twice as big surpriseup!
