Shark Fishing Blue Sharks Mako Sharks
Shark fishing is done from either a drifting or anchored boat. Hooks are baited with fresh fish, and a block of frozen ground up fish chum is hung over the side and allowed to disperse with the current as it thaws. Sharks intercept the scent and work their way to the boat. Sometimes they'll be seen swimming on the surface, or right next to the boat. Other times the first clue that they've arrived is when line starts screaming from a reel and a mako jumps 15 feet out of the water. Oh how exciting shark fishing can be!
