More About Shark fishing trips
Here in the Florida Keys and Key West we have an abundance of sharks, each of them unique in their own way. With as many species of sharks the Florida Keys enjoys yet another fishery that makes it more impressive as the Sport fishing capitol of the world. The species one can expect to target here are: Bull Sharks, Lemon Sharks, Bonnet head sharks, Black tip Sharks, Hammerhead Sharks, Spinner Sharks, American Sharp nosed Sharks and Nurse Sharks Just to name the more popular species.
Shark fishing charters are mostly done in the shallows near the flats and near shore reefs all up and down the Florida Keys. There are few things that will get an anglers heart pounding faster than a 300lb Bull shark Swimming right up to take the bait off the surface just feet away from the boat. Shark fishing is also done around the bridges and in the channels both day and night. Ask your guide when you contact him where, when and how he or she fishes.
Fast easy and fun
Shark fishing may be one of the more rewarding fishing charters available with a catch ratio much greater than our other sport fish species. For example a 4 hour charter generally will offer shots at 3 or 4 big Sharks. For an angler who wants to tangle with something really big Shark fishing may be the way to go for your day on the water.

It's all about the sharks
Treatment of these animals is the shark fishing guides responsibility and each one does it differently.
Most Florida Keys fishing guides all release sharks that are caught for sport so they can live to play again and handling them near the boat is done in the best interest of the shark.
Catch and release is promoted when shark fishing to preserve this incredible rich fishery for many years to come. Sharks are very hearty and can recover from a fight better than other species of fish that we release. Most shark fishing guides have figured out ways to get the "shot" for a photo to memory your catch.
