Let's Take It Outside with Misty Wells video: Shark and barracuda fishing

Sharks play an important role in our oceans as the top of the food chain. Sharks' starring role is to keep fish populations in check and help maintain a healthy balance in our waters, sea grass beds and coral reefs. Catch-and-release shark and barracuda fishing is a lot of fun, but be sure to bring wire-leader or the fight will be over quickly. When fishing for smaller species, use lighter tackle and be sure to handle them safely and provide a quick release into the water. The best cut baits to bring in sharks and barracuda are mullet, bonito and mackerel - and don't forget the chum. Some shark fishing rules have changed so check with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.
