Marlin fishing may not be that good right now, but there are still some big fish around, like this 100 lb bull shark caught by Michael Theodore part time Cabo resident. Michael was fishing the shoreline at Pedregalito about 16 miles up the Pacific coast - he had caught some bonita earlier in the day and used one of the heads as bait. The fish was taken in just 15 feet of water and took 45 minutes to land on 50 lb test. It put up a good fight and was very agressive so they made sure that once gaffed it was really dead before they put it in the boat. He told us that there were several other sharks in the same area as they hooked a total of four but could only get one to stay on. Next day out they had another three hook ups on bull sharks and caught a 70 lb'er.
