Catfishing For Hammerheads

When I was younger, we used to fish for catfish by tieing four or five feet of monofilament to a 2 liter Coke bottle, baiting the other end with a chicken liver, and tossing it into the Tar River. When the bottle started moving upstream, there was a catfish on.

When it comes to fishing for hammerhead sharks, it's basically the same setup.

In addition to the 400-yard gill net, they used drum lines, which are 30-pound weights attached to buoys, attached to 100 feet of 700-pound monofilament line and a 14.0 circle hook.
