My name is Caleb, I am a fairly new shark fisherman. I have lived most of my life in both Southern California and central Florida.. I have fished most of my life from offshore to inshore. I used to look down at shark fishermen, and treated sharks like very many fisherman like a "nuisance fish" I thought that if I paddled out any smelly piece of meat out past the breakers that, I would be able to catch all the Sharks I wanted. Boy was I wrong, I went to Sebastian inlet this last June and dropped a whole stingray in monster hole off South jetty with my international 50T. I had beefy tackle (or so I thought at the time) 500 meters of power pro 150 to 40 yards of 200 lb bill fisher. I got hit and instantly destroyed. I was in disbelief, and after a couple more monster hits, I realized that there are some fish that are unstoppable. I also realized that we have no idea, what's out there. I have been hooked ever since spending every weekend I can dropping monster sting rays into the surf, since then I have landed 1 lemon which was 9 foot to the fork. And a juvenile bull about 4 foot to fork I'm learning that shark fishing is extremely technical and hard. I'm stoked on the challenge and can't wait till we land a monster tiger or even a GW. Based on our unique location off cape canaveral, I feel we might have a chance at one during our colder months. We have beefed up a senator 9/0, fin nor 12/0 in addition to the international 50. . I would like to have an account, and network with other shark fisherman in order to further progress in land based catch and release shark fishing. I look forward to interacting and learning from other fellow shark fisherman on this site.
I fish pretty much every weekend from Ponce inlet to Sebastian inlet with a full spread anyone interested in collaborating with me pm for details thanks and happy sharking.
