one of the best spots that i have had for sharks is chicken bone(the parking lot right before you inter fort pickens) on the sound side..but thursday night i think..i set my line out and waited when nothing happend for a while i started to reel it in to re-bait and paddle another one out..turns out i was reeling in line soaked with BP's accident......i had to wrap a towel around my line to keep it from entering the reel....

From your question mark after soundside I'm wondering if you understand what he means. If you drive toward the National Seashore and turn right into the the large parking lot just before you get to the park, you will be close to where he is talking about catching shark. I have not fished there for shark but I have seen some from a boat on the sound side of the island. Gulf National Seashore is a good place to fish but if you go into the park, you need a permit to stay at night. I do see guys surf fishing off the beaches and I have seen sharks caugh. You also might want to look through some of these posts. There are several posts with photos and they tell where they caught the shark. You don't want to shark fish where there are people in the water especially during dusk or dawn so you might want to travel on down from the main beach.

I know what the soundside means, I was just in aww, of it being in the bay like that, and thick enough to cake up on his line. I have shark fished many times in that area off the beach in my yak, my buddy dosnt have a yak so i just figured we would surf fish around in that area. As far as shark fishing around paople I hate people when people do it when I am there with the family, I plan on staying away from crouds and if there are people any where close if and when we hook up, they will know.

I'm sure there is, but its just cheaper for me to take my yak and paddle baits out. I'm not going to take some one that has never evan caught a shark, or gone kayak fishing, to go shark fishing in a kayak.

Hey flats, I'm pretty sure last time we went out you came out empty handed, just saying. And, the shark I caught almost tagged you, thanks though for helping me get it on the beach. Its the only fish you got to touch!!! now thats funny.

go to the pass and cast in the direction the tide is moving, u can go to walmart and pick up one of those inflatable rafts(thats what i did until i got my hands on the kayak), we have hooked on big bulls the past 3 times, landing 2 of them so thats what i recommend...if u can get your hands on a stingray for bait then you wont have to worry about crabs btearing your bait up, bring a gig and a strong flashlight and you should be able to to stick one right around there in the shallows, best of luck and hsow your friend a good time
