If you plan to go shark fishing you should also plan to put in some time catching bait. Small bluefish make one of the best shark baits. Mako sharks are particularly fond of bluefish and most other species will also jump on the offering. On the way to the shark grounds, bring along a wire line outfit and umbrella rig. Drop it over around the inlet and troll up a bunch of blues for fresh bait. If you have a live well try to keep a couple alive for the best hook bait of all. Bluefish fillets with a brightly colored plastic skirt also are deadly on the sharks. This is Kevin Brink with a huge thresher caught on a bluefish bait.
