Black tip sharks are "fire crackers". They explode on the plugs and fire out of the water, jumping, like a rifled shot, spinning at an incredible speed. Hence, the local name is "spinner shark". Sometimes they come close to the boat while in the air, which will give you a little scare. And it is not over at boat side as you can see. I've got numerous bite marks on the side of my boat.
