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.

Happy birthday to Marcos Galvan @galvanflyreels You won't find a better family in the fly fishing industry. Marcos is one heck of an angler, an amazing father and the crafter of fine fly reels. We're honored to fish with you and your family every year, especially on your birthday bro! Thanks for keeping our fleet styled out with such killer reels.
