Default Shark Fishing in the Bay

I want to shark fish from my boat in the bay. I was wondering where a good spot to do this would be? Around the 3 mile bridge, around the pass, maybe around Garcon Point? Should I use chum to create a chum slick? What times are best? I know shark fishing from shore has always been good at night, but can I get sharks to bite during the day?

Last time we went in the bay at night, we had a big shark break off a 200lbs. mono shock leader with wire and caught 2 4-5ft. blacktips. That was in between 3MB and the Pensacola port. We usually set up a drift and simply drift across the bay with baits deployed. I have not actually taken time to try, but I would assume that fishing near any pass would be very effective. We chum when possible, but its not necessary. Shark fishing is better at night, but still doable during the day.

We hooked a huge one 3 days ago right at the entrance to the pass, never got it up, almost spooled a 9/0 penn before it finally broke off. If you want big ones, Take a whole chicken, stuff it with chum or any fish of your liking...stick a 14/0 hook inside hooked through the breast, throw it out and hang on!!! My buddy sprays his down with WD-40, he says it attracts them. Never tried it but he has caught some big sharks doing it.

Thanks for the advice and suggestions. I'll probably fish between 3 mile and the port. I'll let you guys know how it goes.
