Shark on the menu

It’s shark week on the Discovery cable channel this week. Fitting for the frenzy of shark programming, area fishing guide Capt. Chris Galati helped guide contractor Frank Agnelli and his crew Aug. 4 to an encounter with a bull shark. They were fishing 50 miles offshore of Anna Maria Island aboard the charter boat Miss Anna Maria with Galati, Capt. Mike Kasten and first-mate Christian Hightower. Galati estimated the catch would weigh in at 300 pounds. The shark ate a 20-pound amber jack as it was reeled to the surface. Islander Photo: Courtesy Chris Galati
