Mixed Bag Trip with the Paul Shumacher Charter

Had first time customer Paul out with lovely daughters Jessica and Lauren, and friends Bill and Matt. Plan was to live-line stripers, due to work schedules and timing felt an offshore run might be more fun and a change of pace for entire crew. Paul agreed, left the dock late morning and headed to some water that looked good on the charts. Got there had good water clarity and temps, some boats had already landed bluefin, but bite had tapered off, put in the lines and had Big Matt up for his first saltwater fish, landed some 10lb falsies to start the trip, with the girls landing them as well. Decided to hit a local wreck so the crew could try something differed landed a nice cod, and dozen ling to add to the catch. Changed gears and went into shark mode, put in the chum and had sharks into our slick immediately, hooked close to a dozen sharks up to 8 feet, with everyone fighting their fare share. At the end we where using spinning rods and sight fishing them. Good times with a great crew.
