YANI--come get your friends!!

I went out of North County last weekend to try for a bluefin. No luck with that, but the yellows were thick. After letting two go, I decided to keep two and head in. One reason I like NC is I can keep fish alive in the water and not have to worry about f"n dogs. About a mile offshore something jams my outdrive and the two yellows are going berserk. I look over the side and a big hammerhead was trying to get my fish--squealed like a little girl. Even After I pulled the fish in he kept circling my kayak. At one point there were three of them around me. Other than being in a thunder storm this was the only time I gotten the jitters on the water.

wow impressive and terrifying at the same time. Like Yani said, I would have chucked a yellow and gotten the hell out of there.

Remember, they are more scared of you, than you are of them.

Funny you should say that. I poked him 2-3 times with my paddle-hard, he never squealed, all he did was just swim faster.
