ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO I LOST A CUSTOM 11' ROD AND MY FAVORITE OLD MITCHELL COFFEE GRINDER TO WHAT MUST HAVE BEEN A SHARK. I WAS FISHING BUNKER AT LANDS END ROAD IN ORIENT. I WAS TENDING TO ANOTHER ROD ABOUT A HUNDRED FEET AWAY WHEN THE BIG STICK DOUBLED OVER AND THE DRAG STARTED TO SCREAM. I SET THE OTHER POLE IN THE SPIKE AND LOOSENED THE DRAG AND STARTED RUNNING TO THE BIG ROD. I COULD HEAR THE DRAG START TO LOCK UP, JUST AS I WAS ABOUT TO GET MY HANDS ON THE ROD IT SHOT UP AND FLEW OUT OF THE HOLDER. I WAS STUNNED TO SEE MY GEAR FLY INTO THE SOUND BUT MORE SO WHEN I SAW A SPLASH AND SWIRL THE SIZE OF A VOLKSWAGON OUT NEAR WHERE MY BAIT HAD BEEN. THIS WAS IN LATE AUGUST. I AM SURE IT WAS A SHARK, BUT THE MOST FUNNY THING ABOUT IT WAS THAT WHEN THE ROD FLEW INTO THE WATER MY GIRLFRIEND SAID "IS THAT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN"

THANKS ALOT
