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 Scalloped Hammerhead apart is his sledge hammer like head, but the front being more curved, with slight flat or divotted areas toward the front, with its eyes set apart to either side. His pectoral fin may be slightly darker to black on the posterior side.

These fish are found in the open water, but more frequntly than his cousins, the other Hammerheads, comes into nearshore or coastal waters in search of a meal.

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