Ask some fishermen in the hot summer months where they were reeling up heads and getting broken off by the toothey creatures. Ive seen 12' sharks here. Its not for the ill equipted. The local reefs and wrecks sometimes hold several big sharks at the same time. You are as likely to catch one at the Russian Freighter as the Edge. Good luck!

my first try would be in the water :poke but you could ease out to one of the local wrecks a little before dark to get set up and start chumming...you dont have to shark fish at dark...just is a little more pleasurable in the summer time...as far as gear i would go a little more than what i thought i needed...sharks have lots of teeth and muscle

We have went out and difted the pass before with a chunk of Bonita on and caught a 6' bull shark and a 6' black tip. Out at the bridge rubble my buddy was reeling in a Bonita and a 9 footer took the bonita and snapped the line.

Everytime I fish Dixie Bar I catch more sharks than Reds. We had a blast one day catching 4 footers while trolling. We had triples on with a few minutes each time we starting trolling. We were within a long cast from the west side of the beach at Ft. Morgan.

Fly a kite with a spanish off the beach when we get our first north winds in the fall. Might work today. Anywhere on the beach is good during the summer. It only gets better as the sun goes down. If you're using big bloody baits be sure to stay away from swimmers and crowds.

If you can find a kayak,you can try what we used to do and paddle your bait out past the 2nd sandbar and we usually didn't do too bad... Only catch is it works a little better at night and a kayak can be a little scary out there after dark! Also see if you cant find a penn sennator 9/0 that's gotta be my favorite shark reel :)
