I am a retired #professionalhockey player running land based shark fishing charters off of #PensacolaBeach. Land based shark fishing is a sport for the hardcore athlete. We're talking 200 lb braided line with 1,000 lb leader with a 20/0 circle hook on a reel that can lock down 100 lbs. of drag. We take the kayak out up to 800 yds. to drop big baits like barracuda, stingray, bonito, and jack crevalle. There's nothing like the sound of the clicker screaming in the middle of the night letting you know you are hooked up to a stud shark! We #catchandrelease (and often tag) all sharks we land.
