More about Shark Fishing

Shallow water fishing for sharks is a blast! In the clear shallow waters of the Florida Keys a large shark such as 150 pound Bull shark will stand out like a Trident submarine as it swims up behind you boat. Here you can choose to throw this apex predator a fly, a top water plug or a one pound jack and try to entice a bite out of him. Sight fishing for sharks this way will make memories that will last a life time! Standing on the deck of a professionally rigged bay boat or skiff and watching these magnificent animals approach is an angling challenge that you have to experience. These beasts found up on the flat as well as patrolling the deeper edges through out the day are wary and can be as hard to get to strike as a Bonefish or Tarpon, but then again they will also jump on any offering you throw them at times like a linebacker on a fumbled football. You never know and that is what is so great about shark fishing in Islamorada!
While fishing in the backcountry waters of the Everglades National Park many times you will drift the deep channels and basins casting baits and lures for Sea Trout, Redfish, Snook and other fun fighting fish and your guide will drift a large live bait out behind the boat on a shark rig. In no time at all you can be fighting a large Bull, Lemon or Blacktip shark. This will keep you busy for hours catching the many different species of backcountry fish while waiting for the next sea monster to strike.



On the blue water side of the island chain large sharks patrol from the deep drop off on the reef to well out into the deep water of Gulf Stream current. Big Bulls, Hammerheads, Blacktips and Lemon sharks are found year round here, sharks like Tiger and Mako show up at different times of the year and are prized for their fight. Many times these large sharks will literally show up at the back of your boat as you are fighting other fish and they become targets of opportunity, this is another time when you see the value of a professional fishing guide and captain. The crews of the fishing charters here in the Florida Keys are top notch teams that keep their boats and fishing rigs in the best of condition. This ensures that you will have a fighting chance at landing and releasing a shark to brag about later.
