5 hour Shark and Pompano Surf Fishing

Free cancellation
SURF FISHING: CASTING FISHING LINES FROM THE SHORE ON A BEACH WITHOUT A BOAT! This charter targets Pompano and multiple large species of shark ranging 5ft up to over 12ft plus that are consistently cruising our coast looking for their next fishy meal. I paddle out a large bait, 100+ yards off the beach, and when one of these large sharks grabs that bait, you are in for the longest, biggest “BATTLE OF YOUR LIFE” with one of these massive predators! I will outfit each person with a Pompano surf rod rod. Plus I will bait and set two 120 pound shark rods. SHARK ARE STRICTLY CATCH AND RELEASE! Some species CANNOT leave the water, protected by law.
