NSB Shark Hunters - Hiles South

Join NSB Shark Hunters for a once-in-a-lifetime fishing adventure! Operator Cody Almany will help you catch some real monsters from the Beach!

Get an adrenaline rush at night with excitement, you can meet your guide in the on the beach and take your chances with these sea legends. You will go out depending on the tide, but Cody can be pretty flexible.

If you want to have a more relaxed, enjoyable experience, join them in the evening, and watch the sunset on the horizon with a rod in your hands.

You don’t have anything to worry about in advance, except for getting a valid Florida fishing license and bringing it with you, as well as the Shark fishing permit course, which is available for free from the FWC. All the equipment will be provided, including Rods, rigs, and bait.

Target different species of sharks, like Bull, Hammerhead, Blacktip, Thresher, and Tiger Shark. It’s a very exciting challenge that you surely won’t forget!

Feel free to bring your family along with you since you only pay if you’re fishing, and spectating is free. Kids older than 13 will get the chance to try their luck in these waters, but anglers under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Since you’ll be shore fishing, there’s no need for life vests. Your excursion will be catch, tag, and release. Your guide will provide chairs and water, but you should bring some snacks to stay refreshed throughout the experience.

While this listing is dedicated to nighttime land-based fishing, Capt. Dustin offers daytime deep sea charters as well. You can find his deep sea listing by scrolling below and clicking his captain profile.

If you’re up for the challenge, book NSB Shark Hunters for an unforgettable night on these shark infested waters!
