Shark Week with Capt Brant! Book Your Trip Now!
Who needs shark week when you can book your own personal shark experience with Capt Brant! Right now the shark are in a feeding frenzy in Pensacola and Perdido key. We are running several shark trips a week and having great success on every outing. The main shark we are catching are blacktips. Blacktips, as some of you know, are very good to eat. They range in size from 3 to 8 feet in length. Blacktips are a very aggressive shark and the tend to put up quite the battle when you have one hooked up. Our bay system is full of Spanish Mackerel and sharks LOVE Spanish Mackerel. We usually start our trip off loading the cooler with lots of bait. The great thing about catching shark bait is that sometimes the bait fishing is just as fun as actual shark fishing. And hey, if we don’t use all of the mackerel for bait, you will have some to take home for dinner. Spanish Mackerel are great on the grill! After catching enough bait, we head to the shark hole. The shark hole is a deep water channel directly in the middle of the bay. For some reason this is a shark feeding zone! We use one side of the Mackerel for bait. I filet one side just like I were cleaning the fish to eat. We then put several rods out and wait! It usually takes no more than 5 minutes to get our first run! We are averaging 8 to 20 sharks per trip with several big ones in the mix! Here are a few pics of last weeks shark trips for your enjoyment.
