This Shark & Barracuda Fishing trip is a fantastic way to have a fun day out on the water in a budget-friendly way. Captain Greg doesn’t have to go very far offshore to find big fish! First Captain Greg will take you and your party trolling for Barracuda, a long sleek predator capable of swimming at high speeds. Barracuda can grow over 50lbs with records even breaking the 100lb mark. Kids love to get a firsthand look at the incredible mouth of a Barracuda that is filled with long piranha-like teeth slanted in multiple directions to keep prey from slipping away.
Next, depending on the fishing conditions of the day, Captain Greg will either take you to the reef on the Ocean side or the shallower waters of the Gulf side. If you fish the Atlantic side, you will either drift or anchor as Captain Greg chums the sharks to the boat. Shark fishing on the ocean side can yield any number of species of shark but you would be specifically targeting Blacktip Sharks, Bull Sharks, Nurse Sharks and even the occasional Tiger Shark!
If the conditions of the day suggest fishing the Gulf side, you will be anchoring up and chumming for Blacktip Sharks, Nurse Sharks, Lemon Sharks and Blacknose Sharks. There are many other types of species of shark you may hook including Bonnethead Sharks, Hammerhead Sharks, and Bull Sharks. Every now and then even a rare Mako or Spinner Shark can make an appearance.
