Despite the changing salinity after recent rains and Caloosahatchee water releases, shark fishing continues to be great this month. I've found that almost any deep hole or channel in Pine Island Sound has been loaded with sharks that are more than willing to take bait. A variety of cut baits have been successful, but fresh works better than frozen. My typical shark rig consists of 5 feet of 300lb monofilament leader or 100lb coated wire with a barrel swivel and a 7/0 to 10/0 hook crimped on each end. Add just enough weight to keep the rig on bottom and you should be hooked up in no time. Most sharks we've reeled in recently ranged in size from 3 to 6 feet with beautiful blacktip, sharpnose, and lemons being the most common.
