Bonnethead Specifications

Water: Salt/Coastal Waters Where: Offshore / Surf / Inshore
Size: Most common at 2-6 pounds and can reach upwards of 10 pounds or so
Fight: A good fighter for its size but not as well known for its fight as other sharks.
Deliciousness: Good
Range: Both Coasts Technique: Drifting / Still Fishing
Baits: Shrimp / Baitfish / Clam Tackle: Spinning / Baitcasting

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 Bonnethead apart is its head, which resembels the head of a shovel with a rounded front.

These fiah are found in coastal and inshore waters as well as along the beaches in the surf. Sometimes venturing into deeper waters in search of a meal.

Live batifish, and cutbaits are the best natural bait, while artificials are not commonly used when targeting these fish.
