Well the Michigan Men came back down on 4-20-13 for a shot at a monster shark! And they were glad they did. We started out the day by catching live blue running for amberjack bait. Then we caught a few amberjacks up to 50 lbs for shark bait. After that it was out to the deep water and we set up a drift with two rods for giant florida keys sharks! It didn’t take long to get a bite, maybe 10 minutes and we were hooked up. It was a 45 minute battle but then we caught and released an estimated 500 + lb tiger shark! They were thrilled! We kept islamorada shark fishing but no more luck out deep. We then decided to head back towards the reef and try for some other smaller sharks. We hooked up a bull shark out first drift near a wreck, but unfortunately pulled the hook about 20 feet away. We didn’t give up though and after another hour of fishing we caught and released a healthy bull shark pushing 200 lbs! The day came to an end after that but everyone was happy and they got to see “jaws”. Shark fishing in the Florida Keys is best in the Spring time for the giants, but there’s always a few around all year! Email me to book a shark fishing charter aboard the Bn’M!
