Shark fishing from Montauk can be a lot of fun. However, it takes an attentive crew to make sure the experience is a safe one.(shark fishing tips)

Primarily, we fish for the following types of shark: mako, blue shark and thresher. Other species will, occassionally be landed, but these are our primary targets.

A nice sized blue shark we caught in the Marine Basin Tournament (caught by Jimmy Browne - June 2004)
