We started out at SLP, going to fish a rig that is insight of the bridge. I dont know how far it is, but you could just barley see it. Anyway the water was to rough. We got a mile out and it was very uncomfortable. So being that I had my wife and her sister with me and they wanted to catch a shark I said to heck with it and we loaded up and went to GYB. Went to the jetty because I am familiar with fishing there. We got out 2 or 3 hundred yards from the jetty towards Boliver and started chumming. Had the best shark of the year on and after I passed the rod off to one of the girls it went under the boat and the circle hook came out. From the way it pulled Id say a 4 maybe 4.5 footer. Next ones were all sharpnose only to 3 feet, but they did have fun. I wanted to try the end of the jetty but it was still to rough out in front of it. All the sharks came off cut croaker that I had caught. I cant make the large frozen shad stay on the hook long enough to do any good. 5 minutes of fishing with them and nothing left but the head.
How big are the sharks you guys catch around the end of the jetty?

the only bait that i've used that is still good after being frozen are stingrays, eels and squid. hardheads are still fairly firm after being frozen. i use them as a last resort if i can't catch any baitfish.

if you fish the boat cut on the North Jetty, you'll usually hook up to some 3-5' sharks.

There are usually loads of 4-5 ft blacktips out there. We usually get one close to 6ft per trip as well. I like to use mullet caught with a cast net, or fresh shad from the shrimpers. I have posted this before, but my favorite way to catch sharks is to put a live mullet about a foot below a large float. You get to watch the shark circle and nail the mullet. The sharks usually put on quite a show, especially if youleave the bait close to the boat.
