As you can see in the above pictures of Joe Merritt's Mako shark, we have BIG sharks! Key West has been long revered as one of the absolute best places to fish for huge, monster sharks. Key West was thrust to the national spotlight with the award winning, incredibly successful MadFin Shark Series and countless other national television programs. Key West sits where the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean meet, prime shark waters.
Our Monster Shark Challenge trips are without a doubt one of the most exciting ways to meet up with one of nature's top predators. Bulls, Lemons, Hammerheads, and Black tips are in great abundance in the shallow waters very close to Key West. Most of these monster sharks are between 6ft to 10ft long and all of these monsters are pure excitement when hooked up. The combination of live bait and chunk bait fishing ensures success. We target the shallow water sharks that are on the flats for one reason, to feed. We set up huge chum slicks and actually see them come to the baits we have right behind the boat. As the slicks start to draw them in, they become very active and start to aggressively feed on the surface. This is when your heart starts pumping and you can expect them to crash your bait any second!
