Smooth Hammerhead

Smooth Hammerhead Specifications

Water: Salt Where: Offshore / Surf
Size: Most common from 20-100 pounds but can reach up to about 200
Fight: An agressive striker that is quick and a huge pull, altho his endurance is questionable.
Deliciousness: Good
Range: East Coast Technique: Drifting / Still Fishing
Baits: Baitfish Tackle: Spinning

All members of the shark family are identifiable by most anglers pretty easily, as they for the most part have similarly shaped and colored bodies (anywhere from a light brown, tan or grey if not darker upper halfs and a lighter underside), what sets the Smooth Hammerhead apart is its head, which resembels the head of a sledge hammer, but the front is slightly curved with eyes offset to each side. The fins just forward of his long threshing tail are not curved, but straight and seperated from the body.

These fish are found along the east coast in the open and deep waters, sometimes ventruing into shallower or nearshore waters in search of a meal.

Live or dead baitfish make for the best natural bait, while artificials are not used when targeting this fish.
