Default How to shark fish

Going to st George island for the week and staying on the beach. My son wants to shark fish. What’s the best way to do it- rod, reel, line leader, hook and bait...?

How old is he?

Sharks come in all sizes. What size are you trying to catch?

What is your budget?

The water is still a little cool inshore for most species but there should be some sharpnose, bonnet heads and a few bulls around. Stop at Fisherman's Choice in Eastpoint and Charles will fix you up.

any fishing rod, 6 ft or longer, reel (spinning) that holds a couple hundred yards of line, some wire leader, 13/0 circle hook, some cut bait (bonita, lady fish, blue fish etc) sinker 4-6 foot above the bait. sling her out and wait. try for an area away from people swimming, and playing in the sand. I presume your fishing from the beach that you're staying on.... be patient and have fun...
