A special fish!

Hi lads and lady's,

I don't post here often at all but yesterday I managed a fish I feel is worthy of a post,

 

I was fishing my normal rock ledge I balloon for sharks while I have the big bait out I was spinning with my 10lb setup hoping for a bonito or salmon for bait when a belting hit took me by surprise. after watching 100+ms of line melt off the sol I was pretty much certain I was attached to a solid bluefin, the pure joy and amazement when this solid shark mack popped up in the wash had to be seen to be beleaved! Now I have seen a heap diving down this way but only ever heard of a few being caught pretty happy to get my own, and yes this was taken in Albany wa!
