Well the title sums it up. Me and my brother will both be on spring break and will be heading down to Holdens beach for a day trip. What can I expect? Any sharks? Really hoping to use my new to me kayak and break in my penn 9/0.

April 1st?

A 4000 pound Great White, and a couple of huge Makos, but only if you can keep the big Tigers off your hook.

Well I was really hoping for atleast a 6000lb great white. LOL

I might be heading down to Oak Island that weekend so I'm interested as well about whats being caught, particularly off the beaches. Anything or is it still too cold?

Sorry buds, I don't think you'll be seeing many sharks. I'd guess it'll be blowfish and whiting if life's looking good. Baby blues might be in by then. Water temps like oldmulletbreath there said is what runs the show, pretty much the game doesn't start until we hit 68.

So when should the sharks show up on the coast?
