If you’ve ever wanted to catch a shark, then you should know which sharks live around Miami. There are multiple different kinds, but all of them are hard to fish for and are often highly prized. Make sure you know your shark breeds before you go out to catch one. And be careful, too!
Blacktip sharks are often found in the Gulf Stream offshore of Miami and Miami Beach. They can also be found in shallower waters. These sharks put up a big fight, so be prepared. This shark fights hard when it gets hooked, and if they’re near the surface, they’ll jump and spin out of the water. The sight is extraordinary.
Mako sharks are also found offshore near the Gulf Stream. They’re not common in South Florida, and people often end up catching them when they meant to catch other sharks. They’re also big fighters, and people consider them beautiful trophy fish. Amazingly, they can grow much larger than 500 pounds.
The hammerhead shark is a very recognizable shark, thanks to the unique shape of its head. They can be found over coral reefs and deep in the Gulf Stream. Generally, smaller hammerheads are caught in the summer and larger ones are caught in the winter and spring. Their weight usually ranges from 50 pounds to 250 pounds, but they can grow much bigger than that. The biggest hammerhead ever caught on the Therapy IV weighed 1,024 pounds.
Shark fishing can be an exhilarating experience. If you come out of it successful, then you’ll have a great trophy fish and a wonderful story to tell.
