Catching Sharks On Artificials [VIDEO]
We were down in the Keys hunting for barracuda when we stumbled upon a bunch of bonnethead sharks.
Now, we could’ve just started pitching lures to them, and we might have been successful, but to increase our odds of catching them, we first tossed out a bunch of dead shrimp to get them into a feeding frenzy.
After we did that, we tossed out a couple of dead shrimp on a hook and had some fun catching them that way.
Then, it was time for the test — will bonnetheads hit an artificial lure?
I landed a nice bonnethead on the Power Prawn, and it was a blast hearing that drag scream as I wrangled in the feisty shark.
Now, if you want to catch sharks on artificial lures, keep this in mind — it can take a few tries.
I had some sharks ignore it, some chase it down then snub it, some hit it then spit it, and then, finally, I landed some.
Just like any other species, the more sharks you get your lure in front of, the better chance you have of catching them.
Live bait fishing is fun, but there’s just something about catching a fish on a little piece of plastic that’s so much more fun!
If you want to catch sharks on artificial lures, it’s best to chum and get them in a feeding frenzy first, then get your lure in front of as many sharks’ faces as possible.
You can get the Power Prawn, the shrimp lure I was using in this video, here:
