Thanks for the help. My boat is a 19 foot cruiser with a 165 inboard motor, so I don't think I should try to get too far offsore with that boat. I am not sure my boat could hold enough gas to get out to 150 foot deep water and back to Galveston. I don't know where the East Breaks are. I understand the part where you are saying to troll my bait behind a moving shrimper, but I am not sure I follow you on the part about drifting your bait around behind him while he is moving. I am not sure I understand how to do that if we are both moving. Also, when he is pulling his nets, how far back do I need to stay away from him, and also, should I be directly behind him or behind him and off to one side? I'm not really new to boat fishing, but I am very new to shark fishing. I have always gone fishing with my dad in his boat, but he always is only interested in trout. He never lets me use anything other than my light trout rod and live shrimp for bait, and on the RARE occasion that we accidentally hook something big, he just wants to immediately cut the line and re-rig for trout. So of all the time I have spent on a boat in Galveston Bay, I have never caught a shark. Now I have my own boat and I want to start targeting them, but I don't really know where to start. I launch the boat at Eagle Point, and I would like to go Saturday and go out through the jetties into the Gulf, and try to find sharks along the beach or behind a shrimper if I find one. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
