    Shark Fishing Help

    On Friday we are going up to the bay of islands to camp on Urapukapuka island, We have seen a few bronzies around last year and i was wondering what tips people had on attracting and catching them. Also if any one knows of any other spots in the area where i'm likely to encounter sharks.

    Thanks

    Chris

    Cleaning Fish over the back of the boat will bring them in.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Hi Chris and welcome,

    Few tips mate.
    If you wish to release the sharks after carching which im sure you do, take the barbs off the hooks or fold them flat. This will make it possible to remove the hook with relative ease. Be bloody careful here though
    Also if fishing from or near rocks dont use a braid mainline as it will ping with the slightest contact. I'd use a mono of 24 kg or more.
    Bonito head will be a good bait, nice and oily and also burley up heaps.
    Being in the spot you are planning id be after a good snapper too
    Good luck

    No worries, take some long nose plyers too keeps your hands out of the chomping zone
