This prehistoric fish is legendary for its fighting ability. Some fisherman catch their first shark by accident, when they catch a fish and a shark tries to take it way from him, getting hooked in the process. Sharks can be sight-fished and will go after bait. Many people catch sharks just for fun and then release them. But they make great eating. If you get a big one into the boat, just make sure he is the one who gets eaten and not you.
This silver giant is not easy to catch and not easy to get into the boat. But hooking one will give you the thrill of a lifetime. They are strong, and have been known to fight for hours. They respond best to chum and live bait and are not too difficult to get onto the line. Tarpon show up most plentifully from May through late September.
