On Aug 27th, 2016 Doc, and his wife Cindy came out for their second night of shark fishing, but joining them this time was their daughter, Emily. The action remained consistent all night as they were all put to work on five Sandbars and one Bullnose ray. Doc had brought along 3 shark tags, and was able to reach his goal by using them all. At one point all was quiet, when suddenly ALL of the reels start screaming at once! Lots of fun with the Rudermans, and I can’t wait to fish with them again next season!
