I have been fishing the North Drop since the mid-1980s. The only time we were concerned about sharks was if the fight lasted more than an hour. In the past few seasons, encounters have escalated. Now when you hook a fish, it’s a contest between the sharks and the boat, and who can catch the fish first. As soon as the boat comes out of gear, the tigers, bulls and duskies show up. They are evolving to the sound of the engines changing from trolling to idle, signaling the dinner bell. I’m always in favor of conservation, but sharks, in my opinion, are not endangered, at least not on the Drop.
