im going fishing this weekend for sharks in the surf and im wondering what type of bait to use for bigger sharks and how to rig them on a leader and what type of leader would be best to use any ideas will be greatly appreciated lemme know thanks
Whatever is in the surf where you're fishing is the best. Everyone likes rays, but last time I went I soaked a ray for 2 days that didn't get touched and had 3 huge hardheads bitten up to the head (don't ask me why the hook didn't bury). Take some shrimp or fishbites and catch whiting and hardheads most likely. Toss the cast net and catch some small mullet, croaker, or whiting and rig them up live and see if you can catch some jacks or skipjack or something.
best luck to you man, i've never caughten any sharks on gaftop. i've always thrown mullet, or mack and it seems to produce. gotten many bonnet head on shrimp as well, and as far as riggin them. a nice steal leader with at least a 12/0 circle hook through the head and a stinger in the anus of the bait (stinger= #1 treble droup a' loup, feeding through the eyelet of the hook and leader). good luck.
