I saw some guys doing that on south beach Wed and Thu last week. They were having fantastic results. Wish I had the guts to try it.

Someone was doing that here in GA last year and was pulling in 12' sharks. Consequently he was banned from the pier. However it is quite useful when you don't have very deep water near the pier, or when you can't hit the deep stuff with the heaver.

Using a kayak to take your baits out an drop em off. Talked to a guy that did it for sharks last summer an his buddy was hooked up before he got back in.

Carrying bait out using a kayak. You can also use balloons or trashbags as long as the wind is off-shore.

Or kites...I think jenettes lets you kite fish after dark...not sure which one. People use a kite with a breakaway hooked to it...fishing tuna heads way out for sharks.

If your going to yak out their with the bait...why not stay and fish from the yak?

Double Haul,just a guess,cause I ain't a yaker,if you hook up with a large fish you get "towed around" in a yak.. If you are standing on shore,you can actually put much more pressure on the fish,while being in a much more stable possition ;) as well as land him much quicker,that's my theory anyway..
I would think it much more efficent at getting the bait to the "exact" hole that you wanted it.. Kites and trashbags ain't got that kind of accuracy,have tryed both.. :rolleyes:

Looks like a nice shark. I guess you could do it if you anchored it down real well. Don't know if I would have thrown that in my Kayak though :eek:

Yeah you can tell he speared it a few times but I have heard many a stories when people have caught sharks and thought they were dead and started to play around with them. And then CHOMP!! There goes a hand, toes or fingers. You've got to remember there is still nerves firing even up to 24 hours after death and if you play around in the mouth then you are bound to get bitten. :eek:
