Epic Surf Fishing

Epic Surf Fishing

 

Josh invited bass fisherman Mike Hsiao from 1Rod1ReelFishing to go surf fishing in Florida during the annual mullet migration. It was an epic day of fishing! Thousands of mullet were pushed into the wash by jacks, tarpon and bluefish. Both Mike and Josh were hooking fish every cast! The jacks were blasting topwater lures and the bluefish were biting anything that moved. Mike said that this was the greatest fishing day of his life.

Surf Fishing for Sharks and Bait

Surf Fishing for Sharks and Bait

 

In this episode, Josh kicks off the day fishing for blacktip sharks using lures. After a few hours and no hook-ups, Josh decided to switch gears and catch shark bait. There was a lot of bait and sharks in the water, but the sharks were fixed on live bait. Josh was using a double hook rig with squid for bait. The first fish that was hooked got eaten by a shark. The second fish was a bonefish, which was a huge surprise! After catching over a dozen blue runners, Josh decided to try fishing for sharks again. Within a half hour, Josh hooked to a feisty blacktip shark. After a five minute fight, the shark shook the hook. Josh did not get any more shark bites after losing the shark.
