Fishin up date – 08/24/16

Lemon Sharks big ones average 6 to 7 foot long, I would guess 200 pounds or better are quite a common catch right now.
different types or style of fishing for them on is to drift from in front of Bull bay to in front of Turtle bay.

The other place and style is by Useppa Island to Patricio anchor and use a chum bag. These are a catch & release Sharks only
the way to tell a Lemon from a bull Shark which you are allowed to keep over 54 inches is the Lemon has its two top fins the dorsal and the one over the tail, are the same size, where as a bull shark the rear top fin is munch smaller. No lemon sharks are not Yellow in color. A lemon may be gray, brown o even darker colors how-ever, I have seen a couple which were close to Yellow in color.

Please flatten the barb of your hook when in an area that would have Lemons This ensures a better catch and release.
Bonita and Mullet chunks are the two favorite baits. If drifting free line the bait out no sinkers, if anchored up, one free-line and one with a sinker on the bottom. Good size chunk of fish larger than 2 fist is the ticket. Big bait bigger fish.

    Listening to your Tarpon report, it has been very good late night at TOM ADAMS bridge, I fish it every morning 2-6am for the past 2 months BOMBER LONG A’S any color works you have to work it may take 100 cast but it will produce a bite. ANY MOON / PHASE ANY TIDE you just have to work it.
