When we go fishing, “everyone’s always excited out there to see what we bring in,” he remarked.
And it’s wonderful to involve the children, especially my younger cousins.
“It is the ocean here. Sharks reside in this area.”
He added that it’s been nice to be outside, include people, and instruct them in fishing considering the COVID-19 pandemic during the previous few years, as well as how everyone has recently been “inside.”
It’s been wonderful, and it’s been wonderful for the sport.

“We’ve captured a lot of larger sharks this year. Since the season has been cooler, I do believe that some larger sharks are entering the area while some lesser sharks are “staying further out,” “Braun added.
I’m not a scientist, but that’s just my fishing notion, he added.
He added, “It’s the water, it’s where sharks live, it’s their home.”
