Just curious...anyone here every go sharking on a Kayak? It seems like it would be easy enough to paddle out a mile or two and tie off a smaller bucket of chum. Anyone here ever land one like this?

I got into lemon sharks on my kayak in the keys a couple of years ago. They were a blast on light tackle. Prob 25lbers. But i clipped the leaders as close as i felt was safe for me. I dont know about landing a shark but u can def c&r them.

Hey Pennsy guy.....that's me holding that monster shark from Myrtle Beach!!!! LOL LOL You found that picture quicker than I could!

I vacation in Myrtle Beach SC every year with the family and take my kayak with me. Catching sharks is easier than catching the live bait for the sharks. I have had many days with 10-15 sharks up to 6 feet long for the few hours that I go out..if the conditions permit. I catch the bait a few hundred yards off the beach, head out about 1/2 mile, drop the live bait down and hold on!

If I can see the hook exposed enough, I will try to remove it with an 18" hook remover. If I can't see the whole hook, I just take a few pictures and cut the wire.

As far as the second picture with the salmon sharks....those are 3 of the guys I travel with to Alaska and Mexico and different areas with. All of the guys are hard core and are always looking for a new challange.

This year for us, it looks like PV Mexico for BIG TUNA, staying in a 50 foot boat for a week, 100 miles off the coast and waking up each morning ready to launch the kayaks about 10 minutes after breakfast.
