Speaking of blue sharks, we had a guy hit one on the front side of Great Kills two years ago. Not so small either. And I know two guys who picked blues up off the beach in Breezy Point.

Going to try a shark run early next week now...I had a feeling it might be good early.

There are blue sharks here at Breezy that is confirmed.

No Threshers yet though.

This rain, east wind, and dirty water will push them back offshore you can bet.

I am heading to Myrtle Beach next Wed. with my kayak, golf clubs and my wife. Weather and surf being a factor, I hope to get out at least 4-5 times in the mornings and catch sharks until my arms are tired. Catching bait first thing in the morning is key. I try to catch about 10 croakers in the 6"-8" range, and try to keep them alive before heading out about 1/2 mile from the beach.

I put the live ones on first and within minutes, I will be fighting a shark in the 6-7 foot range. Once I start with the dead ones, it seems like the 3-4 foot sharks take over.

An easy surf is the key down there. The waves start breaking about 200 yards out, and continue all the way to the beach. If the surf is bad, it's off to the golf course.

Sounds like a great trip Dany. My brother is down there. Been taking my surfboard down for years but never found a single rideable wave.

What set-up are you going with as far as terminal tackle and whatnot? I am going to Florida tomorrow for a long week and hope to get my dad onto some good fish. He caught a brown shark last year and LOVED it! I got to watch the whole thing and you could see in his eyes that he couldn't believe what was happening. Sharks swim fast!! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Andy, not sure of the name of the knot, but it's simple and held every fish on Christmas Island. As far as terminal tackle, I keep it simple. A fish finder rig and a 75lb rated 18" wire leader to a solid hook. I may have a few that get off, but usually it's a blessing. It really is simple, live bait on the bottom and just start counting until you hear the reel sing.
