Hammerheads in the Indian River bay

Yes, you read that correctly, Monday night a hammerhead was caught in the Indian River Bay.  I know exactly where, not going to burn that spot.  No we do not have a picture, these boys do not fish with cameras, ever.  They have a angling problem that can only be cured by more fishing.  If he said he caught a 50 pound loch ness monster, I would…
