Shark fishing is a sport that combines fisherman against one of the oldest animals on the planet. It is an exciting form of fishing when productive and is usually done, but not always, by chumming the water close to your fishing grounds and fishing with an alive or dead natural bait.
You will need to use a surf rod if fishing on the shore to ensure you get a large cast out to the required fishing grounds. If from a boat you will use a strong boat rod, suitable fishing reel and strong line, hook and a wire trace.
The bait will be a natural bait that is either alive or dead.
Shark fishing can be done anywhere in the world providing the waters are known to have sharks. Destinations such as Australia, the United States are common to have fishermen chasing shark as a required catch.
