Big Shark & Frog Article email answers

I got plenty of emails and messages about where to find the net and lights from my frogging article that released last week on my column.

The 16 foot aluminum pole for the net can be purchased at any Ace Hardware. The net's wire frame and mesh netting can be bought at the Pierre Part Store. My headlight was bought brand new for $25 on At Cabelas it is $60. The Black n Decker light was bought at Walmart for $20. They have the rechargeable and AA batteried ones that all last long. They also make a more costly water proof one and water resistant one, so you can pick for what best suites your needs. Sorry I didn't mention all the details in the article. Hope everyone out there can come across the gear they need.

Here's the article:

Also been busy as could be so haven't posted many of my fishing stories on here like I usually do. Took my wife out shark fishing Saturday in Lake Pelto instead of going after big trout like usual since she wanted to sleep in. We caught and released about a dozen nice sharks. With our chum we had action every 5 minutes. We caught mostly blacktips and a few bulls sharks. My first one of the day was HUGE! Had more fun on that trip than all dozen of my trout trips this summer put together, but I love battling giant fish more than anything.

Here are my other two fishing articles from this summer incase anyone didn't see and wanted to read. I got several emails with ppl needing info or advice about the Keys. Anyone feel free to message me, I love to help.
