Shark Hunting on the Fantastic II

As I write this journal, I am aboard the shark tracking boat positioned over Key Largo Hill. The day has been a little slow with a lack of shark activity or "yellow-tails" for bait. Previously we have been over Elbow Reef and the 105 Reef. I watch with great interest as amberjacks are reeled in. A combination of blood and guts from these fish form a slick around the boat to attract the sharks. Bait just can't get any fresher than that! So far, we haven't been successful but continue to relay our position coordinates to the Carolyn Chouest. The day is still far from over, though. Our first day of broadcast promises to provide new challenges for the production crew and staff.

Stay tuned...
