“Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.”

– Henry David Thoreau


Blacktip Shark Facts

Blacktip sharks are common in the Gulf of Mexico and live in temperate and tropical waters around the world. Blacktips and other sharks can replace worn or missing teeth. The new teeth grow in rows behind the old ones and when a tooth comes out, a new one moves forward to fill in the gap.

Give a man a fish and he has food for a day;
teach him how to fish and you can get rid of him for the entire weekend.

- Zenna Schaffer


There you are fishing, sitting on a Bill Busters Sporfishing boat with your feet propped up on the fish box.
Your favorite beverage in one hand, almost lulled to sleep with the slapping waves rocking the boat and the sea breeze cooling the brow.
All of a sudden, from the bridge comes the bellow “FISH ON”!!!
Suddenly from the peaceful calm, you realize it is time to get down to fishing!
The mate has been in fast motion moving the rods so you can get at the one with the fish. There is no doubt what rod to pick up; it’s the one bent over double and the reel screaming.
Adrenaline is pumping through your body, you reach for the rod, and with a little struggle you remove it from the holder.
You cram the fishing rod into the fighting belt that is strapped around your waist.
Getting your body square to the fish and leaning into the padded stern, your desire to over power the fish and become the victor has begun!
