I seem to have the same affliction as a couple of other board members. When I'm not hunting, clay shooting, IPSC pistol shooting, then I'm fishing. One of my favourite spots is the west coast of Africa - Namibia. We try to target big sharks, the most common being the bronze whaler in these waters.
Got 18 hook ups in 2 days between 2 anglers. landed 1 (got bit off, stripped, pulled hooks, straightened hooks, ...). Going back in 2 months time, with some heavier tackle this time. The area is still fairly wild, and you often see jackals etc., hoping to grab a piece of bait, or your sandwich. Measured the landed shark at 8.4ft, which according to the tables is just over 220 pounds. Photo below is with me and a buddy both into different sharks at the same time.
