Great Hammerhead

Great Hammerhead Specifications


Water: Salt/Coastal Waters Where: Offshore / Surf
Size: Most common at anywhere from a few pounds to 500 pounds or more. The giants may reach up to 1000 pounds and reportedly up to 2000 pounds.
Fight: Given its intense size be prepared for an equally intense fight on sheer size alone.
Deliciousness: Considered A Better Game Fish Than Dinner Fare
Range: Both Coasts Technique: Drifting / Still Fishing / Trolling
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 Great Hammerhead apart is its head, which resembels the head of a sledge hammer, flat across the front with eyes offset to each side. The fins just forward of his long threshing tail are slightly curved.

These fish are found in deep and open waters off both coasts, but will venture close or to nearshore in search of a meal.

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