A picture of an adult Sand Tiger Shark taken at the Coney Island Aquarium
At Smith Point Bait and Tackle, stripers and sharks have been holding center stage the week of July 20, 2017. A good number of sand tiger sharks have been around as two friends of the shop landed nice ones off the beach. Bass have also been surprisingly good as a 39 pounder was brought in to weigh just days ago. This wasn’t the only one to draw attention at the shop however it was the biggest so far.
