Shark Fishing Tackle
The right gear is essential when shark fishing. Use a 150-200 lb. monofilament leader material along with a wire leader connected and a hook size of 9/0 to 16/0. A float is also very good to have with balloons being the most popular but styrofoam floats are also available and work well.
For your rod and real, you need to choose a set-up that allows you to fight without becoming too fatigued. Your rod should be at least 50 lb and your real should be a class 50 or greater. Your line should be 90 lb monofilament to give you the ability to catch a range of sizes. If you will be using a harness, make sure you have a straight butt rod.
Shark Fishing Techniques
Set your lines at distances between 50 and a 100 yards behind the boat going from shallow to deeper the farther back they are. Create a chum slick behind the boat to attract shark from farther distances. The more chum the better.
