Scary Shite for sure! Way to hand on to the gun though, I lost a 54" biller last Summer in a similar scenario.

I'll be diving in this area next week...that's not a story I wanted to hear! Glad you (and your gun!) made it back to the boat...besides the AJ, score any fish?

line shafting right? are you rigged with cable? i woulda just cut the mono and ph' ed the shark. that way you get your shaft back.
i dont know from experience. any reason not to? i realize it is hard to cut cable quickly maybe that is why.
