Sharks Near Shore
Jens was here for his yearly shark fishing vacation in Florida. He is from Sweden. Exploring Florida and it’s great fishing locations. Tampa, The Keys, and of course a stop in Boca Grande! We started out playing with some blacktip sharks near shore. Jens hooked the first on lighter tackle, a spinning rod set up. These make these 6 foot blacktips feel like Giants. The second one he caught on the maxel 16.
Jens caught and tagged one last blacktip shark before heading in. That’s a total of three tagged sharks for NOAA’s Apex Predator Program. We stopped along the way in to play with some barracuda. Filling up the fish box and the bait freezer for the remainder of Jens stay in Florida. A great day of catching.
