Default Shark Fishing Help

I am thinking about fishing off the beach just beyond the Portofino for sharks. I will be using bonito and I might be kayaking the bait out. How far out should I take the bait out? What is my likelihood of catching a shark? Please give some more pointers, I will have never done this before. Do I absolutely need to yak the bait out if I'm after sharks?

Unless you can cast a Penn 9/0 or 12/0, I would recommend kayaking the baits out. I usually dropped my baits off about 50yds past the last set of breakers you encounter. About 100-200yds off the beach. BUT....I have caught big sharks within 50ft of shore.

While waiting for a run, cast for those fatty ladyfish with a gotcha. Those fat 2ft ladyfish make irresistible shark bait!

Big gear, big hooks, quality leaders = Big sharks

Good luck!
