Hammerhead Shark on softbaiting gear, Auckland Harbour

Another 5 foot Hammerhead shark this time on an entire Yellowtail live bait set out for a snapper. Took about 10 minutes to get in on softbaiting rod and reel with15lb braid. Was hooked on the exterior of the gills but was available in ok and was battling fit when launched. Fisho Expense was on cam and put it down right before releasing the shark. We launch all sharks and most snapper over 10lb (unless the fishing is actually dire) Sharks had actually taken a bite out of a couple of live baits that day
