Summer Time Shark Fishing Trips

It's that time of year again! Time to hunt the sharks! Many people don't know this, but shark can be GOOD eating!

Here, in the Gulf of Mexico, large sharks such as Great Whites are rare and few between. However, you can easily find a Hammerhead, Bull, Tiger, Lemon, Atlantic Sharp Nose, Black Tip, or Bonnet shark swimming the warm waters of Fort Myers Beach during summer season. You normally won't find them unless you're chumming the waters with bait, which is exactly what Luck o' The Irish Fishing Charters is great at doing!

We love this time of year because shark fishing is a great sport. Hooking into a shark is such a fulfilling feeling, and reeling it in is twice the satisfaction.

Lemon Shark Capt Ryan Luck o' The Irish Fishing Charters

We offer morning, day and night time shark trips at Luck o' The Irish Fishing Charters. You name the time you want to go, we'll try and make it happen. We offer a flat rate of $100/hr with a maximum of four anglers per boat. You'll get a chance to see the different species of shark that Southwest Florida has to offer in the back bay and near the shoreline of Fort Myers Beach.

Shark fishing is the only style of fishing that we use chum for. Some of the bait we'll use is Bonita and Pin fish. You'll have the opportunity to keep your shark (within legal perimeters) or choose to just catch-and-release, if you prefer not to keep it for dinner.

Shark fishing is a growing sport, which means slots fill up pretty quickly for us this time of year. To book your trip in a timely manner, don't delay! Schedule your fishing charter today by following this link or calling/texting Capt. Rich at 239.333.9858.
