Shark Fishing – The Most Dangerous Catch

People have been terrified of sharks long before Spielberg’s Jaws. Humans are the dominant species on land, but in the sea it’s a totally different story. These menacing predators are not to be taken lightly – and only trained professionals should intentionally handle them at all. That being said, the expert fishermen on Therapy IV know exactly how to find and catch the deadliest predators in the ocean.  Listed below are the types of sharks you could find on the other line of your fishing pole while on Shark Fishing Miami excursions on Therapy IV.

Hammerhead Shark

This shark is typically 6 feet in length but can reach enormous size up to 20 feet long and 1,000 pounds (that’s a big fish). A vicious predator, it gets its namesake from the hammer-shape of its head. There are many different species in the world but Florida is popular for the Scalloped and Bonnehead shark. Catching one of these sharks could be the ultimate prize for a fisherman.  

Lemon Shark

This shark gets its namesake from the yellowish appearance which is a peculiar color for this type of creature. They can grow up to 12 feet in length and have odd shape teeth, adding to their unique characteristics. Lemon sharks are more solitary creatures than most so they are hard to find and catch.

Nurse Shark

The Nurse Shark is very common off the coast of Southeastern Florida and the Keys. These ocean floor dwelling predators travel in groups up to 40 and can grow up to 15 feet in length. When it comes to shark siting’s off the coast of South Florida – these are the most common. Catching these sharks can be relatively easy if it’s a younger, smaller Nurse Shark. However, a full grown adult weighting up to 330 lbs could be a much greater challenge.
