Shark Fishing On Demand: How To Catch Big Sharks On Light Tackle
By: Joseph Simonds on February 13, 2020
What a BEAST!
Have you ever gone shark fishing before?
Sharks are pure muscle and fight like crazy.
We went out with Capt. Mark “Hollywood” Johnson from FloridaKeysFunFishing.com where he showed us how to attract sharks right up to your boat fast, so you can sight cast to them and catch them all day.
This way of catching them is so fun that we just had to share it with you!
Watch the video below to learn how to attract sharks to you and sight cast to them, plus tips on what not to do when battling these monsters, which baits work best, and much more.

Such a cool experience!
If you want to catch sharks like this, too, here’s what to do:
1. Catch some oily fish like bonita, Spanish mackerel, or ladyfish (the fresher the fish, the better, so try not to buy frozen fish).
2. Butterfly them
3. Put them on a stringer like he had in the video
4. Toss it over the side and wait for the sharks to come to you!
The best way to do this is while your drifting.
The ideal situation is when the wind and current are moving in opposite directions so that you can create a nice chum slick.
Doing this while anchored up is not ideal because sharks can get smart when they notice the fish aren’t moving, but it can still work if you have no other choice.
This is such a fun way to fish!
The anticipation of waiting for a 200 lb shark to take your bait, seeing them eat it, then watching the rod double over and hearing the reel scream is amazing.
Check out this post here if you want to see how to make your own stringer like this and how to rig up baits for shark fishing.
