Shark Fishing with New York Mets Pitchers Steven Matz & Sean Gilmartin

 

In this episode of BlacktipH, Josh goes fishing for sharks with MLB pitchers Steven Matz and Sean Gilmartin from the New York Mets. Captain Carl picked up several dozen live goggle-eyes from his bait pen, then we headed offshore and started fishing on a nearby wreck. Josh and Carl pitched several live baits behind the boat and slow-trolled for barracudas. After hooking several barracudas, Josh rigged up the shark rod and Steven Matz put on the fighting harness.

First Blacktip Shark of 2017:

Shark Fishing Logan River – Stabbed By Worlds DEADLIEST Fish

 

I go out to The Logan River where I get STABBED by one of the worlds DEADLIEST fish but still manage to catch some Bull sharks.

By the way, thank you for all the amazing comments and support you have been giving me over the past few months – it is so great to hear from you all 🙂
It would really mean a lot if you would share my videos around to your friends and family and encourage them to subscribe. Make sure you tick the box to be notified as soon as my videos are released.

The Story: Well over the past few weeks I’ve been searching for Bull Sharks and after traveling to a few different places, using different bait and I had NO LUCK. Then my Uncle Steven told me that one of the best places to catch BULL SHARKS is in the Logan River, and the 2 best baits to use is freshwater eel, or live mullet. So a week later I travelled up to Logan & went fishing with him to try and catch some Bull Sharks so we could show you how to catch and release a Shark. After heading out to the junction of the Logan & Albert Rivers, we threw the anchor down, chucked in the baits and started fishing, and in no time I was hooked up to a BULL SHARK!!
And it seemed like they just kept on coming in… But that’s a different story… enjoy this video and thank you!

 

Shark fishing – Catch n Cook! HD

 

On this adventure I went out to a huge saltwater river near my house and caught a juvenile bullshark. After the great fight, I show you how to Fillet, Cook and eat this awesome fish (because they taste amazing). Watch the full video to see it all go down 🙂

Please note these Sharks are not endangered and it is legal in my State of Queensland to catch one per trip as long as it is under 1.5m .
There does seem to be a lot of confusion about Sharks – To say Sharks are endangered is like saying Birds are endangered – not all Birds are endangered and not all Sharks are endangered – but some are and therefore they are protected to save them but others are flourishing or as in this case of the Bullshark in Queensland Australia, it is actually legal to catch for reasons that are decided by Scientists, Marine Biologists and Governmental departments due to their growing numbers and their impact on the local environment and safety for humans – So I hope you understand better now – I definitely do not support Finning and Drift nets and how they are killing Shark species for make up and jewelery etc and will do all I can to stop these things.
Cheers for watching and for your concern, it is very encouraging to think so many people care about animals because I really do too as you all know – thank you for watching – Miller 🙂

Beach Shark Fishing Struggle, Finally Caught a Break!

 

After many weeks of terrible weather and massive waves, we finally caught a break and were able to go fishing for sharks from the beach. Josh has been very frustrated with the weather. October and November are some of the best months to go shark fishing from the beach in Florida. Jason from Southern Fin Apparel joined Josh on this shark fishing conquest. We were using finger mullet to catch our shark bait (ladyfish, bluefish, and etc…).

Shark Fishing with NFL Linebacker Sam Barrington – 4K

 

In this episode of BlacktipH, Josh is joined by Sam Barrington, an NFL Linebacker from the Green Bay Packers to go fishing for sharks off the coast of Florida. Until this day, Sam had never seen a shark before. After several hours of chumming, Sam hooked up to his first shark ever and it was a monster! Sam fought the beast for nearly 30 minutes! It was a huge bull shark (estimated the weight to be around 350lbs). We snapped a few photos and quickly release the tired shark. Sam was thrilled to watch the biggest fish of his life swim away after a healthy release.

 

 

Basic Shark Fishing Tips

It seems like every sport has a category that is set aside for the extreme and believe it or not, there are some that were not deterred by the movie Jaws and they choose to seek out sharks instead of run from them. If you are so bold as to take on shark fishing, you should understand some basics before hitting the open sea.

If your goal is to actually catch a shark, the best time to do it is in June. The temperature is not too hot and it will attract more of the predators you seek. If you decide to fish for sharks in the middle of the summer, you should be aware of water temperatures and try to find the coolest spot possible.

When you plan a shark-fishing trip, you need to be prepared. Many people would advise keeping a checklist beforehand in order to help you with preparation. Some things that you should include when packing for your trip are chum and proper gear. Your rods and reels should be able to handle a three hundred pound fish or greater. Typically, you should plan to fish with three to five baits in the water at a time. Therefore, you will need many rod and reel setups to accompany the ratio of bait.

The best rod to use is a fifty to eighty pound class rod. You should not forget your harness and safety straps (you do not want to fall overboard and become live bait). In addition, you want to remember your bait and chum. Running chum is the most effective way to trap a shark so be prepared for a mess onboard.

It is important to know what species of shark you are wanting to fish. Different sharks swim at different levels and temperatures. In order to set a shark trap, you will have to tie your farthest bait off the bow rail with a flat line clip. Make sure that the line is out of the way and stay in the highest rocket holder on the particular side of the boat from which you are fishing. You should attach your bait, attach a weight or balloon on the line, and plunge it approximately eighty feet. The second rod’s bait is set down sixty feet while resting in the trolling holder; this line is also attached to the midship with a rubber band. The third line is set down thirty feet with no balloon but rather free bait. You should make sure that your drags are loose so that you will be alerted early by the clicking sound of the reel. If you color code your balloons, it will be easier to tell which rod is being pulled.

Once you have waited and finally caught your shark, be prepared. Sharks will have different temperaments and act according to their agitation. Some sharks have been known to slightly drag the bait before they swallow, while other sharks will run at the boat, run in the opposing direction from the boat, or come right up to the boat. If you need a harness, make sure that the harness is safely attached to the boat and the reel.

Once you have the shark close to the boat, your experienced sidekick will be able to help. You will want to hand wire the shark into the boat. Hand wires are meant to be sturdy and they will not break if you are attached to them. Do not wrap the wire around your hand because you want to be able to let go of the wire easily if you have to. If you are keeping a shark, you will need to gaff and rope it by its tail.

Remember that you should only keep a shark if you have plans to eat it, use it in a tournament or if you believe it is a contender for the world record. You can always just take a picture of the shark without killing it.
