Default Shark fishing

so ive been shark fishing off the beach alot and i really like it. now that i have a good boat i was wondering if anyone could tell me a good wreck or spot to go shark fishing. probably a long shot asking someone to give up a spot but figured it couldnt hurt to ask.

I'm curious of the same. I have a few friends in town this week who want to do some catch/release shark fishing but with the wind I'd like to stay in the bay. Does anyone know if there's any decent shark fishing in the bay this time of year?

If you want to stay in the bay the 4th red channel marker south of three mile bridge from what I've heard is supposed to be a good black tip hole. haven't been there yet myself though.

Go to the I-10 Bridge rubble. There are bull sharks there that have been steadily harassing spearfishers. Once they hear the bands go off, they come running. I havenít dealt with them there, but I know several people that wont dive the spot anymore because they are so bad. Good Luck.

If you want to have a blast sight fishing for sharks, go out Pcola pass and turn right. Watch that shoal. It can be real shallow close in, and on windy days it can kick up like a sumbitch. When you get past the shoal, just search that whole area from the beach out to as deep as you can see. We usually stay in the 10 ft or less range. You never know what you will run into there. I've seen 2 footers to 10 footers there. Make a 3 ft steel leader of 60 lb or greater with a circle hook. Then about 3-4 ft of 50 lb flouro attatched to 20 lb main line on a cobia set up. We use this set-up with a half a spanish mack. We just spot the shark and cast out in front of them. It's a blast! You get to watch them get fired up and slam your bait. You can also just anchor and chum 'em up. Chasing them around is MUCH more fun.
