Fishing is a popular pastime worldwide, whether it’s done for sport or as a means to feed a family. Some people like to reel in bigger game, though, which is why shark fishing is growing in popularity around the globe.
Folks all along the U.S. and Caribbean shores have begun participating in shark fishing, as it’s officially called, by chartering boats that’ll take them offshore into the ocean where bigger fish roam.
It doesn’t take any special skills, really, just a lot of strength. These aren’t your typical guppies you’re dealing with after all. A larger rod and reel are needed to bag your prey and you might even need a hand or two to get it up on the boat.
It’s important to keep in mind local laws and regulations when it comes to shark fishing, as it’s illegal to fish endangered species in many areas. In others, however, it’s been shown to be an effective way to control the local populations from growing too large.
Depending on the location and scale of your shark adventure, a trip out to sea could cost anywhere between $500 and $5,000 for a weekend getaway. We recommend the waters of the Caribbean for beginners, or off the coast of Mexico.
