SHARKS

Hunting, shooting, fishing for Sharks

Spinning, Fly fishing, Game fishing, Salt water fishing, Spearfishing


As the sun rises, deeply tucked in behind the horizon, a boat of four fishermen slowly cruise further and further away from shore.

With new tough, single strand wire leaders added to the rods, baiting rigs are secured and finished by adding fresh bait to the serious hook.

Sharks are pure strength added to rows of sharp razor-like teeth; if one takes a “sample” of one of your baits, gets hooked and starts shaking his head, you better hope you don't get shook or snapped off because of equipment error.

Since sharks are at the top of the marine food chain, any species frequently falling prey to shark makes for great bait, so long as it is fresh. There are over 450 species of sharks. Smaller shark species such as the mako can be caught with a spinning rod and fly rod with larger species demanding deep sea spinning rigs.

A day out for shark is a true ocean adventure with many chances at other species. Sharks can be found where the fish population, of many different species, is healthy and unlimited.

When you find the fish, get ready to find the shark!
