I tried for years to catch a shark on
the South Coast from a charterboat and never had a sniff so I was
delighted when the second time I tried on my own boat,
Seajay, we hooked two, one of which we landed, unfortunately
one was lost. Since then I have managed to keep a 50% record on
porbeagles, we haven't had a thresher yet its the next on my list. I
really like going for sharks it's exciting enough watching them
swimming round the boat let alone hooking one, playing a
200lb + porbeagle is the most exhilarating fishing I've done
without doubt! I operate a shark catch and release policy, strictly under no circumstances will a shark be
killed, we have had sharks that have appeared all but dead, but still swim off
strongly when released.
Have a look below at some of the pictures of shark caught from my previous
Seajay, hover over the image to see a larger picture.
