shark fishing is normally a drift or slow troll–2-4 mph– sharks are looking to ”eat” so if there are no signs of bait in the area you are fishing it will be tough catching ! known as a ”chumslick is drifting and at the same time putting out hands full of cut up bait– any bait will do they will smell it – when drifting instead of just putting out a lure on the surface – drop down some Ballyhood top gun dep ”drift”/trollers –fish in various levels–maybe 1 lure at 60ft deep then 1 at 35-40 ft deep one at 15-20 ft deep and with some thing on the surface have a piece or slab of bait on all the lures — here’s a great ‘trick” –on the Ballyhood deep drift-trollers there is a pin in the haed of the lure ”snap on a 6” ”glow stick” it will light it up and all fish eat squid and squid light up ! YES IN THE DAY TIME !! go here
