Default Sandbar sharks

Does anyone catch sandbar sharks on Casted baits in the winter?

Yes, depending on how far you can cast. Most of my casted baits have been blacktips, spinners, etc.

Sandbars are usually just a little further, and unfortunately I seem to find them. They are a lot of fun on spinning gear, though.

I'm pretty sure that Chris (lowprofile) caught a number of big sandbars on casted baits here last winter. Hopefully he will chime in.

Yeah it seems on the east coast on the South Carolina georgia coast they catch sandbars on casted baits. Also I think they catch a bunch in sanibel on Casted baits. My friend sent me picture of sandbars in a foot of water there last christmas

Sharks will go where the food is. They have for thousands of years.

I've caught plenty of blacktips and sharpnose on the long rod as well, a possible spinner that I never 100% ID'd and one bull. Only got spooled once.

Awesome thanks lowprofile. I guess the bite isnt as fast with sandbars as it is blacktips though?

I've noticed over the years, the cooler the water gets, the sand bars come close the beach into the shallower waters....

You'll get a decent amount of sandbars now. If you want the bigger boys you have to battle through the sandbars. They are fun on spinning gear. Never caught one on my smaller conventionals, though.
