Default Best month for sharks

What is the best month for shark fishing from the beach? Taking the weather and environmental factors like grass and jellyfish into account.

I've tried twice in June and one year the moss and weeds were too thick to keep a bait out, and last June the south wind blew all week with big surf making it almost impossible to get a bait out and if we did get a bait out the moss drug it back in. tried one july and the jellyfish were as thick as the June grass.

so if a guy had to choose one week a year to surf fish for sharks in the Navarre area and wanted a variety of species and the best chance for good conditions, what week or month would you guys plan it.

September is nice, water temps, bait, weather & of course sharks.
Especially if it cools off a during the day, in general nights are fantastic.

How would fishing from shore for small sharks be this week with the warm temps from either Big Lagoon park or Johnson's beach area?

No. There's scalloped hammers, tigers, sand bars, bulls, sharpnose and spinners.

It all depends on your level of comfort. March / April / May: The sharks are there, but be prepared to bring a jacket for the evenings and the water temp is still going to be a little chilly. June / July / August: Hang it up if your trying to fish from the beach! The weed is terrible and if you don't have 1 or 2 other people with you to help pull weed/grass off your line you're in big trouble. Personally, I don't have the patience for it and that's when I hit the Sound and Bay. September / October is the most ideal in my opinion. No weed and the weather is still warm enough to be out in shorts and t-shirt. Lot's of hammer's and tiger's to be caught too. November / December / January: Bring a jacket a dry set of clothes or waders. February: You're usually chasing ghost and the shark bite is rare until late March or April when the water temp picks back up to the low mid 60's.

Fish when and where the fish are, not when it's comfortable for you.
