Sand Bar. We got a couple of them off Emerald Isle not all that long ago and yea buddy they can pull hard. Didnt last very long but I was wore out when he came in. They really seem to love cut ladyfish on EI. What did you catch him on if you dont mind telling?
Caught the shark on finger mullet. Was targeting long range blues on my conventional Tommy farmer 11' rod. Took a while to get in as I had 12lb line on and a 3/0 hook so let the reel drag do most of the work. A blast on a rod designed for mullet/blues.
