Fishing with Van Hughes and Sarah

I’ve been fishing four times over the last year. And I must confess, the only fish I’ve hooked have been mental. As in, in my mind.

I had a monstrous 14 inch rainbow trout swim right by my Powerbait. And I imagined it taking a bite of my hook. But nnnnnnooooo.

To salve my fishing nerves, I watched this video by Van Hughes and his friend Sarah. It was filmed in Cherry Grove in Myrtle Beach. And in it, Sarah loses a 5lb red drum to a bull shark. You read that right, a bull shark. Caution, standby for some explosive f-bombs. Sarah lets lose on a stream of them. I don’t blame her. As far as I can tell, it was not photoshopped. The team rehooks the shark here. . .

  1. Up here in BC we lose big salmon to the seals that wait patiently beside the boat just waiting for you to reel one in, the lazy thieving buggers!

    1. Argh, I have seen the exact same thing off Catalina Island. Guy next to me on the boat was reeling in a giant albacore. You could see the seal as a dark shape coming closer. And it snatched the fish and the guy got a fish head.
