Proper Hook Placement For Landbased Sharkfishing

Author: South Florida Sharks

Keep Missing Fish?

 Make sure your hook placements are not too deep or not too shallow. Hook placements is a big deal for shark fishing. Whether you are using a whole ray or a mullet hook placement matters.  For my big fish baits I always run one in the lip of my bait, with enough depth to hold with a good yank, but not but with most of the hook showing.  

For stingrays they have nostril holes I always put one there and one in the back. I think that a picture is worth a 1000 words when it comes to showing learning how to do something, so I have included a few pictures. below that should help.  Hope you guys get on the fish and stay tight!
