  1. This is a great idea for the general public like the man in hospital. I'm sure he would've appreciated a safety net yesterday as he was being hauled up the steep dunes then medflighted to a hospital.
  2. CBS is reporting that it was a 61 old man and he was "standing" 30 yards off the beach when bitten. So he wasn't swimming (no wet suit), wasn't surfing (no wet suit), just standing. He was probably standing in water up to his hips I would presume when attacked. Fortunately there was some med students on the beach along with some other good Samaritans who helped save this guy's life by packing him in towels to stop the bleeding and get him up the steep dune to an airlift. Here's the story below. TRURO (CBS) – A swimmer was attacked and seriously injured by a shark at a Cape Cod beach Wednesday afternoon. The man was bitten by a shark at Longnook Beach at about 4:00 p.m. The 61-year-old suffered puncture wounds to his hip and torso. He was taken to Wellfleet and then loaded onto a Medflight helicopter to be flown to Tufts Medical Center. The victim reported he was bitten while standing in water approximately 30 yards offshore. It was two recent graduates of the Boston College nursing school who first rushed to the man’s aid, using towels to stop his bleeding. They told WBZ-TV’s Louisa Moller it was clear that he had been bitten by a shark. “We’re walking, people start running in the other direction saying a man had been in a shark attack,” said Molly Tobin. “So having just graduated from Boston College nursing, we were like OK lets go see if there’s anything we can do to help.” Several people helped carry the victim up a dune to the beach parking lot. “It was awesome to see how many people were able to come together to help this man,” said Kerstin Peterleitner, also a recent nursing school graduate. “There were so many people helping carry him off on a blanket and then EMS met us halfway through, were able to strap him on a board and so many people helped carry him up that hill.” Longnook Beach was closed after the attack, but several swimmers remained in the water. WBZ-TV’s SkyEye spotted what appeared to be a great white shark in the water near the scene of the attack. The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy, a group that raises awareness of sharks, says these types of incidents are usually a case of mistaken identity. “Encounters with white sharks in which people suffer injuries are as terrifying as they are rare,” the group said in a statement. “Sharks ‘test the waters’ with their teeth, much like we use our hands. It is how they determine if what they encounter is prey or something to avoid.” The attack happened about three miles from where two great white sharks were spotted last week. The sightings prompted officials to close Head of the Meadow Beach temporarily. In 2012, a swimmer was attacked by a great white shark off Ballston Beach in Truro.

  4. I've used some cheap brands and haven't had the line twist. I'm not sure what main line your using (mono or braid), I use braid. If your experiencing twist with mono, try the braid and the suggestions the other guys have offered. I don't use metals or epoxies that often, I tend to go with soft plastics so that in itself could be a difference maker. Good luck LLS.
  5. Conflicting reports on the sex of the victim...NECN say's its a woman.
  6. Newsweek had this.. The injured person, reportedly a 61-year-old man, was bitten in the leg, according to WCVB. An emergency services helicopter was on the scene. CBS Boston reports it was a surfer.

  8. If that person got hit in the area you specified it can be devestating. The femoral artery is a large artery in the thigh and the main arterialsupply to the leg. It enters the thigh from behind the inguinal ligament as the common femoral artery, a continuation of the external iliac artery. I hope he or she obviously makes it and doesn't have to lose a limb. ZLX is playing Comfortably Numb as I type. God speed!
  9. Best bet to help eliminate wind knots is to use BB swivel. Who wants to be dealing with that crap when Albie fishing...knot me.
  10. Pretty sure they're eating them over there, hell I eat 'em here.....just the medium sized ones on occasion.
  11. Blew away the Mass. record out of Edgartown 19lb 5oz.. I caught one roughly half that size from the Hobie last year and it was such an amazing battle.
  12. 10 kg False Albacore (Euthynnus alletteratus). Light shore jigging Looks like the hook up was close to the wash.
