Blacktip Shark Specifications

Baits: Shrimp / Baitfish / Crab / Squid / Lures / Flies Tackle: Spinning / Baitcasting / Fly Fishing

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 Blacktip Shark apart is its blunter, small head and black tips on his fins.

These fish are found in most of Floridas salt waters, ranging from the open sea to nearshore and occasionally inshore waters.

Live or dead baitfish and shrimp make for the best natural bait, while poppers, streamers and plugs make for the best artificial bait.
