Lemon Shark State Record in HHI

Outcast Sportfishing out of Hilton Head Harbor is proud of the fact that they caught the state record blacktip shark in 2009. Now Captain Chip Michalove is back up to his old tricks. Angler Stephen Liesen from Quincy, Illinois chartered a trip on 7/22 and caught one fish all day, a 380-pound Lemon Shark! It beat the record set in 2002 by R.L. Price that went 370-pounds. The shark has been certified by SCDNR as of today to be a new state record Lemon Shark. Congrats to the angler for catching the shark of a lifetime!
