Two Texas anglers catch same 10+ foot lemon shark on Padre Island National Seashore 1 year apart
PADRE ISLAND NATIONAL SEASHORE, Texas – Two Texas anglers caught the same lemon shark nearly one year apart but with one major difference -- the 123-inch shark is very visibly pregnant in the second photo. “That was the first shark I ever caught on that particular rod and reel,” said Fuller, who told KSAT he caught the shark off the coast of Padre Island National Seashore. Just over a year later, Paul Odabashian caught the same lemon shark along on the Padre Island National Seashore just a few miles from where Fuller caught the shark. Odabashian said the catch “is pending becoming the catch and release lemon shark state record." Both anglers chose to protect the exact location along Padre Island National Seashore where the lemon shark was caught.
