What to bring: layered clothing/windbreaker,
NO TACKLE NEEDED because we supply heavy shark gear but if you want to bring your own gear bring this:
Heavy tackle 4/0 to a 10/0 reels, 60 lb. to 130 lb. test line and rig, 8 oz. sinker or a balloon float, Light tackle recommendations – 40 lb. test line, 4 oz. sinker, and 3/0 hook. Each party will get one larger rod and reel, we may use the Captains giant 10/0 130lb rig at times if conditions permit.
Sharks: Angler may keep one shovel nose shark per person; the boat is only allowed to keep two large sharks. With the heavy boat rods the shark stays with that party if the party wishes to keep the shark and can be shared if angler wishes. If a shark is caught with the Captain’s giant rod, the shark will be reeled in and shared between all anglers. The jaws go the Marina.

At Hubbard’s Marina we have three types of shark trips:
- Saturday night’s spring-fall we offer a 5 hour night trip that drifts for grey snapper similarly to our day time five hour half days. The night grey snapper bite isn’t quite as strong, but this trip offers those, mangroves, and perhaps a possibility for sharks ($55)
- Friday nights around the moon phases we have special trophy shark trips that only allow 8 anglers. These also run spring-fall. These trips are the highest quality public trip for sharks. We only bring out the big tackle and it’s a serious shark fishing experience. ($150 includes shark tackle)
- We have shark fishing private charters available all year round. This would enable you to go out on a trip like we explained in #2 but the difference would be you and your group are the only anglers on board while our captain and crew did everything in their power to get you hooked into a monster shark!
