Plenty of [toothy] critters around.
+1 on the fresh caught something for bait. Suspect you'll have to pick through remoras too, and perhaps Kings/Barracudas, but heck you'll be on the Guff "in search of...."

only prob with bonita this time of year is everything eats it so you will have to check your baits every hour to make sure they are still there. throw out some chunks of rays or whole lady fish or mullett.

Someone told me there are large hammerheads in the channel off norriega point at night. Never tried it. However, I have caught 4-6ft'ers in the gulf, in destin, just east of the east jetty at night on ladyfish and bluefish filet.

Default Shark bait

With the abundance of catfish, I was wondering if anyone has ever used them for shark bait and are they any good? I have never been shark fishing before, but intend too soon!

I have yet to find anything that will eat a catfish, except other catfish.

Agree Realtor. I have used catfish for shark bait several times. Never had so much as a run. Tried them live with fins snipped off, fins left on, heat cut off, even with small slits in the side and never had one touched.
