Nurse Shark

Nurse Shark Specifications

Water: Salt/Coastal Waters Where: Offshore / Surf / Inshore
Size: Most common at 5-50 pounds, but offshore fish can reach up to about 200 pounds.
Fight: The bottom of the barrell as sharks go. Sluggish and unmotivated, but still can be a heavy pull.
Deliciousness: Excellent
Range: Both Coasts Technique: Still Fishing
Baits: Shrimp / Baitfish / Crab / Sand Flea / Clam / Squid 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 Nurse Shark apart is its rounded head and small mouth with barbels, unusually wide tail and a dorsal fin that starts further back along its topside, roughly half the distant between the head and tail.

These fish are found in inshore or coastal waters as well as the surf.

Any natural bait (live or dead baitfish, cutbaits, shrimp...etc.)will do for this not-picky eater, while artificials are not used when targeting this fish.
