Our Full-Day shark fishing trips average 8-9 hours. A typical day starts with a quick boat ride (usually less than 1 hour) to the fishing grounds. Once you arrive, the captain will prepare and create a chum slick to attract the sharks. Our targeted species are Mako Sharks (May – November), Blue Sharks (year-around) and Thresher Sharks (April-June).

ALL SHARK TRIPS ARE CATCH AND RELEASE! NO EXCEPTIONS!

Fly Fishing for Mako Sharks is our specialty! We use 6wt to 16wt fly rods, and custom-tied Trimble shark flies on all of our mako shark fly-fishing trips. For Thresher Sharks, we use heavy conventional gear so that the fish can be released properly.
