Default shark fishing in bays/icw

do sharks stay in the bays and intercoastals in winter months like they are in the summer months or does the water temp drop push them out? when would u say water temp would be too cold to fish for sharks in bay and icw areas? thank you

Good question! I tend to believe once the water temps drop down to around 64-63 degrees, the chances of catching a shark are not as likely. Not to say a straggler might come around, but with the lower water temps the odds are just not in your favor.

The last good night of sharking I had last year was in mid November. After that was dead until March or April.

We caught a Sandbar in the Sound last January just before the hard freeze. It was dead until the beginning of April.

If we have another winter like last year, I'll be hanging it up probably. But, they are there. My buddy caught a nice tiger on new years.

Interesting. I'm new to ocean fishing. I'm assuming bait stops coming into the sound as water temp drops which in turn make fishing the sound and bays tougher is this an accurate thought?
