As always a huge thanks to captain Dylan and Chris with the struggle is reel charters for having us out on the water today. Shark fishing was tough today due to the high water temperatures but we made the best of it, and caught at least 100 ground fish , and some sweet Maine lobster. A 5 star experience for both captains.

I went shark fishing with Cobb and Dylan a few years ago. These guys are the real deal and know how to land some big fish. I’m not a big fisherman but shark fishing is like hunting, lots of strategy involved. I’d highly recommend rolling with these guys!
