The Best Setup For Catching Sharks On The Flats
Here’s the full setup for big sharks:
- 7ft Custom Biscayne Rod
- Daiwa BG MQ 8000
- 30# Daiwa J-Braid
- 50# Ande Monofilament Leader
- #6 Wire
- Circle Hook
The same tactics can be used anywhere if you’re targeting sharks.
Solid setup + Chum + Big nasty piece of cut bait = Shark On!
When setting up for shark fishing on the flats, you’re basically luring them to you with chum.
And old fish carcasses work great!
You position yourself up current from the target area so the carcass creates a chum slick that the shark will pick up on and follow back.
Use chunks of cut bait from the carcasses.
When fighting these bigger sharks, utilize your whole body!
Engage your core, keep your weight on your hips, and lift the rod up in front of you (never to the side because you lose your leverage).
Do all of these things and you’ll have a shark on in no time!
