Just fish with the bloodiest, oiliest fish you can find and you should be fine. They like them butterflied, and dusk/dawn is when they feed closer to shore.

Chances are very high, while you won't likely see any tigersharks or hammerheads the chances of getting into a blacktip, sharpnose or the occasional large bull shark are pretty good, just make sure your tackle is up to the task.

Are there any sharks that you wouldn't want to eat. I'm really wanting to try some.

I have a question. I would love a tooth from a shark I caught if I got one. First, Is it legal to take a tooth and if so HOW Would one go about it without losing an arm? Call me stupid but I just don't know about these things thats why I'm asking. Thanks.

If it's legal to keep, you can do whatever the heck you want with it. Let it die first and then get a tooth out, a hammer should do the job haha. I'm not sure how to go about extracting a tooth from one and keeping it intact. They have plenty, so try whatever works.

I hooked into two sharks this morning in 3' of water in Big Lagoon. Last Saturday I got a 4 1/2 foot shark alongside the boat in Big Lagoon near Ft. McRee - they were hitting both live pinfish and plastic jigs.

We caught sharks by the dozens last week. Right after sundown. It was like a lightswitch. They cut off the sun and cut ON the shark bite. We were just using 1inch X 2 inch chunks of cutbait on a 2/0 circle hook. If you went 5 mins without a bite, they you were robbed. Caught them anywhere from 12 inches long to 48 inches. It was like fishing for bream. usually you would have a bite as soon as it hit bottom. Great fun for the kids!
