We often catch sharks, usually bull or black tip, but sometimes lemon, hammerhead and sand sharks, when we fish the cuts in the bay. We always release them.
We’ll sometimes catch sharks in the inlets on the tides as they are feeding.
We can also sometimes catch them inadvertently when we are on tarpon fishing charters at Boca Grande Pass or off Sanibel & Captiva Islands.
Big sharks like to eat big tarpon (or little tarpon or any tarpon), so you have to be careful when you hook a tarpon because a shark may come in and attack the tarpon while it is on the line, particularly at the height of the season in Boca Grande Pass.
Come on out – let’s go fishing – or let’s go shelling. Just give me a call and we’ll line a charter up!
Fair winds and following seas,
