In terms of adventure and thrill, the excitement probably reaches its apex with shark fishing. For those seeking to test their skills against these intimidating predators, it’s an incredible ride. The Gulf Stream is full of various sharks to catch, from the massive hammerhead and blacktip to the fearsome tiger shark.
Fishing gear has evolved significantly to where you can potentially get away with snagging a shark using smaller rods and reels. However, not having the right rods could result in lots of frustration, so you want to make sure your gear can withstand the massive strength of a shark. As for bait, bluefish and mackerel are good options, though you could also go with amberjack, cobia, or kingfish. And while it may seem common sense, strongly refrain from placing your fingers anywhere near a shark’s mouth. Even the slightest shark twitch could cause a shark’s mouth to clamp down on your digits.
Shark fishing requires not only technique but also having the right gear, especially gear that will protect you from South Florida’s blazing sunshine. If you’d like some help with getting your shark fishing feet wet, definitely set up an experience on the THERAPY-IV!
