Silky Shark

Silky Shark Specifications

Water: Salt Where: Offshore
Size: Most common at 30-100 pounds, with large fish reaching into the 200-300 pound range
Fight: A fast shark, and like all sharks a fun pull due to shear size and strength alone.
Deliciousness: Good
Range: Both Coasts Technique: Drifting
Baits: Baitfish 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 Silky Shark apart is its longer slender body, with a small dorsal and long thin pectoral fin.

These fish are found in the open sea occaisionally being spotted closer but not at nearshore waters.

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