In life, there are certain things a person can do to truly feel independent and self-reliant. For many centuries and before desk jobs and spa days, people had to be self-sufficient as hunters and anglers. They had to be brave. Today, what can one do to capture that elusive spirit?
The rush of catching the sea’s scariest predator—the shark—is one of those proud moments and an adrenaline rush like no other. Catching a shark brings with it a tremendous feeling; people know they’ve conquered both their fears and the sea itself. Minnows are for novices. Sharks are for thrill seekers.
In the waters of Massachusetts Bay and Cape Cod Bay, lurking beneath the boats, there are four species of aggressive sharks that do not want to be caught. The species include Mako, Blue, Porbeagle and Thresher.
Captain Campbell will tell you there’s a good chance of catching a Blue Shark since they’re the most prominent of the four species out there today. Those monsters can weigh up to 450 pounds. Put out a chum pot and one or two Blue Sharks may show up, followed by a dozen. It’s an once-in-a-lifetime feeling to be surrounded by sharks. To catch one, feisty as it may be, is to feel like you’re the king, queen or prince of the world! You’ll be showing that picture proudly for years to come, and who knows, you may even choose to mount it for your home or office. Wouldn’t it be cool to have a genuine souvenir of your greatest fishing day?
Now’s the time to book your fishing charter as dates fill up fast for shark season, which runs from late July through late October. Call 508-498-4716 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to plan your day of shark fishing with the Captain today.
