Shark Fishing Tip

What is the one tip I should know about shark fishing?

If there was one thing I could tell someone to improve their Shark fishing success it would be to use chum to attract more fish to your area. Chumming is without a doubt the most overlooked method of fishing for Sharks by the average angler. It is well known however by fishing charter captains and used to increase their catch ratio greatly. To successfully chum you need a metal wire chum cage with a door that opens to place the chum block inside and then shuts securely to keep it inside. You can generally purchase this item for less than ten dollars. Frozen chum blocks are primarily made of ground up fish parts. They come sin a variety of grades based on how finely ground the fish parts are. Generally the more finely ground the chum is the better it will work. The absolute key to chumming is to create a continuous chum slick. You cannot wait until a chum block is completely thawed before putting the next one in the water. You need to have an absolute constant flow of chum to keep the chum slick constant and have the best chance of attracting large amounts of large sharks to the area you are fishing. When fishing check out the chum slick and see what direction it is flowing with the water. You will want to cast your line into where the chum slick is flowing. At this point it is a matter of waiting for the fish to arrive and strike your offering.
