Fall Shark Fishing Trips provide a fantastic opportunity to relax on the beach.
There are plenty of Sharks just off of the beach from September – November and the weather is perfect.
Although some of the summer fish have began migrating to warmer waters, we still have a surplus of bait to be found. Pompano are showing up in the surf again, along with Ladyfish and Spanish mackerel.
These fish attract Sharks to the beaches and allow us to catch them just off of the beach.
What species of shark could you expect to catch this time of year?
That’s really all up in the air! Black Tips tend to stay closer to shore during the fall, and can be targeted using cut bait and spinning gear. The best place to target Black Tips is just beyond the first sandbar.
Other species of sharks you can expect to catch would be Nurse, Lemon, Sandbar and Tiger. The beauty of Shark fishing during the fall is, you never really know what you’re going to get!
Please keep in mind:
- It’s always best to fish at night, away from crowded beaches and high boat traffic. This improves the experience for everyone involved, including the Sharks.
- If you are shark fishing, please make sure you have taken the Shark-Smart Fishing Educational Course found at MyFWC.com/SharkCourse and get the Shore-Based Shark Fishing Permit. Both of these are free, but are required by the state of Florida for anyone age 16 or older.
- June Grass is typically not an issue any longer, but there is a possibility that some could be lingering. Be prepared to throughly clean your gear in case you do run into some.
