1-9-13 January Shark Fishing

I got out today with some friends shark fishing in Islamorada for a couple hours. Since I was a young kid I always enjoyed fishing for sharks. We were fishing the flats this afternoon and caught half a dozen sharks, including 5 bonnet heads and 1 atlantic sharpnose shark. These aren’t giant sharks by any means, maybe 3′ was the biggest, but still a good fight on light 15 lb spinning tackle. We were using shrimp for bait. We also hooked what we believe was a big lemon shark, but we were a little under tackled to catch the big one and he dumped the reel before we locked up the drag and broke the leader. There’s always some action to be had while doing Islamorada Shark Fishing, so come give it a try soon!
