Default Shark Medicine

Without going out and getting rigged up in professional shark fishing equipment, i.e. giant Penn Senators, etc., you can use the largest spinning reel / rod combo you have or a large level wind or casting reel that you use for catfish or muskie back home. Long rod is great for getting more casting distance and you will have to have steel leaders longer than the shark you expect to catch. Lots of line capacity is nice. Get it out as far as you can, use 'sand spikes' made of PVC to keep the reel out of the sand and keep the drag loose until you are ready to set the hook to prevent losing your whole rig or spooking the fish. Look back through the old posts. There are lots of tips on how to catch sharks, in the past. Good luck....what you are looking for is definitely out there in front of you on Perdido Key and every other beach around the coast.
