I just went fishing at the Florida keys, and I catch jacks, bluefish, grunts, cuberas and more. But my goal was to bring a shark home, I was fishing next to a bridge at the beach I used as bait a frozen mullet that i bought from a bait shop. I hooked the mullet with a wire and two hooks on. I throw it with out a weight and far as my rod can. I wait about an hour and a half, and nothing came. Please could you help me telling me what i did wrong or what i need to improve? But I think that if I get a kayak and i go farther, and throw my bait there I will get something.
I just bought the Okuma Avenger ABF65 Reel. I picked it over penn do to the price and the “live bait” feature. I have 50lb power pro I would setup on it. Unless you think 40 will work. I am still looking for a rod… i was torn between 10 or 12 ft rod. I plan on getting out and dropping my bait (kayak or somthing) But yes on occasion i will be casting. So I need advice on a rod. also how much mono line and what lb should i use for giving some give and cushion so to speak so should i not have any? Also leaders length and strength and pyramid or slip sinker? what weight? how should i have that hooked up? I would like pics if at all possible. I fish a lot! and have been fishing Florida on vacation enough too. BUT!!!! i want advice on how to handle big sharks! I have cought bonnettheads and even a stingray (no barb on him) but please advice on handling both sharks and rays with barbs! pics please. Also what size pliers I would like links for the products so i can purchase online or ebay whichever So please ALLLLLLLLLLL the advice i can get! 😀 Thank you all! Also i will be fishing in Florida Indian Rocks Beach to be exact so if anyone had advice on where i can get good bait that would be great as well (bonito ect.)
Tbone if you get this can i somehow get your number I will be heading down there kinda soon before i leave for the Army maybe mid feb. or early march. I would like to get as much info from you as i can or even go fishing with you!
