what is with these sand tigers showing up at outer banks pier? last week when i was there i caught a small one 2-3ft. but there was one 8ft+ hooked and brought to pier side one night where it broke off on a piling. later that night a 6ft sand tiger was brought to the beach by someone. and a few nights later there was a BIG one hooked that came in dead, probably gut-hooked. based on the head it was atleast 7ft. my question is are they this common every year from the piers??? and what have you guys heard about them if anything??
