In addition to the Bull Sharks, the Florida Shark Fishing experience offers up some smaller sized sharks, perfect for those anglers who don’t want a major workout battling a monster. Our area is home to plethora of smaller to midsized sharks like blacktip, spinner and sandbar. These sharks are smaller but are extremely fast and agile sharks that often jump when hooked and offer and excellent fight on lighter tackle and even fly fishing the when the conditions are right. Luckily for the locals here in our area the vast majority of human – shark encounters are with these types of sharks where it’s simply a case of mistaken identity and the shark does little damage. Ask any surfer in the New Smyrna Beach and Ponce Inlet area and they will tell you its a common sight to see a couple sharks causing in the waves. Best times to catch these sharks are from March through December.
