I shark fish a lot from land, piers, and bridges here and I don't catch any sharks in the winter months. There are certainly a couple around, but Christmas is redfish time. Maybe if you get out on a boat there are lots of sharks, but I certainly have not seen much success land based fishing for sharks in December. For land based around here, best time is May/June imo.

I CERTAINLY THANK YOU FOR THAT INFO. I WAS UNDER THE UNDERSTANDING THAT THE SHARKS MIGRATED UP THROUGH THE GULF DURING THAT TIME.

WE JUST WANT TO HAVE A GOOD TIME AND CATCH SOME BIGGER FISH.

DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS WHERE WE SHOULD GO AND HOW AND WHAT TO FISH WITH?

AGAIN THANKS IN ADVANCE.

I have had some luck at Ft. Pickens pier during the winter. Try using half a mullet. You can google ft. pickens for directions.

The colder months usually bring in the big boys! There may not be as many of the smaller sharks swimming around, but the big boys will be following those bonita! The colder months is when we normally see a few tigers show up

I believe Polk and his gang caught that big A mako last winter sometime down at Navarre. Think it was in Jan or Feb. Have done fairly well durung the day off the beach in the winter. The big boys do run in that time of year. Float a bait out in a cardboard box on a north wind beats the hell of yakin in cold water.

There are some big sharks that hang near the beaches that time of year. Also; plenty of bull redfish in the pass. I am not sure what the pier rules are for shark fishing that time of year.
