South Florida is lucky to offer numerous species of sharks. We see hammerheads, bull sharks, threshers, makos, tigers, and duskies. One of our specialties is catering to avid shark enthusiasts. We offer a number of trips that target various shark species.
March through July offers the best opportunities for shark fishing. We book a large number of shark trips in these months and our customers have great luck with landing a good hit. The depth we fish for sharks at is usually roughly 300′ and we fish the entire water column, allowing us to target sharks at the top, middle and bottom at the same time.
Shark Fishing: The Ultimate Sport
Shark fishing is one of the most challenging and rewarding types of fishing there is. It requires a combination of skill, patience, and strength to land these powerful predators. I've been shark fishing for many years, and I've caught a variety of species, including mako sharks, thresher sharks, and hammerhead sharks. I've learned a lot about shark fishing over the years, and I'm happy to share some of my tips with you.
The first step to successful shark fishing is choosing the right bait. Sharks are attracted to strong-smelling baits, such as mackerel, mullet, or squid. Once you've chosen your bait, you need to rig it properly. You'll need a heavy-duty rod and reel, and you'll need to use a strong leader. The leader is the line that connects your main line to your bait. It's important to use a strong leader because sharks have sharp teeth that can easily cut through regular fishing line.
The next step is to find the right spot. Sharks are found in a variety of habitats, but they're most common in offshore waters. You can find them near reefs, wrecks, and other underwater structures. Once you've found a good spot, it's time to start fishing. Cast your bait out and let it sink to the bottom. Then, be patient and wait for a bite. When you get a bite, be ready to set the hook. Sharks are strong fighters, so you'll need to use all your strength to land them.
Shark fishing is a challenging but rewarding experience. It's a great way to test your skills and catch a truly impressive fish. If you're looking for a new challenge, I encourage you to give shark fishing a try.
