Shark fishing in Daytona Beach with Captain Sean

Daytona Beach offers some of the best shark fishing in Florida.

Just beyond the breaker waves that crest and tumble as they reach the sandbars only a short swim from the beach are countless sharks searching for their next meal. From the breakers to just a couple of miles off the Daytona Beach shore, sharks are more common than just about anywhere else along the Florida Coast.

The Sharks! The shark species most often caught on a Daytona Beach shark fishing trip with Captain Sean include Atlantic Sharpnose Sharks, Blacktip Sharks, Blacknose Sharks, Spinner Sharks, Finetooth Sharks and Hammerhead Sharks.  We may also encounter other species such as Bull Sharks, Thresher Sharks, Lemon Sharks or Nurse Sharks.

Spinner, Blacktip and Fine Tooth sharks are especially good tasting!

The sharks we catch on our Shark Fishing Trips typically range in size from 3 to 6 feet in length. Sharks of this size put up a fierce fight when hooked and are always handled with caution when brought aboard by an experienced shark handler like Captain Sean.

Even larger sharks have been caught on shark fishing trips with Captain Sean however due to obvious dangers to guests and crew, very large sharks are not brought on board. There are plenty of good size sharks to catch that can be brought on board as “keepers” or for memorable fishing photos. The sharks we catch will provide all the thrills you’d expect from doing battle with one of the ocean’s apex predators.

You can have your shark prepared into a delicious dinner at a favorite local seafood restaurant!

“Keepers” and “Catch and Release”

So which sharks are “Keepers” and which are “Catch and Release”? The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have strict regulations that determine which shark species and sizes are considered “Catch and Release” and which are “Keepers”. In addition, fishing regulations for sharks can be suddenly updated as Florida’s shark populations change.

No worries! Captain Sean is familiar with all the current regulations that determine which species and sizes of sharks you will be allowed to keep and which must be released. Captain Sean is a firm believer in helping to maintain healthy, sustainable shark populations.

In addition to complying with fishing regulations, Captain Sean always uses the proper fishing techniques and gear to catch sharks as well as handling and releasing sharks you don’t keep in a way that increases their chance of survival. So whether it’s a “Keeper” or a “Catch and Release”, shark fishing in Daytona Beach with Captain Sean is always an exciting adventure for everyone on board!

Catch, Tag and Release
Captain Sean participates in the Cooperative Shark Tagging Program, a collaborative effort between recreational anglers, commercial fishermen and NOAA Fisheries to learn more about the life cycles of Sharks.

Captain Sean abides by all current shark fishing regulations! There’s a lot of species we can catch and keep!  For more information see the official Florida Shark Fishing Regulations
