Keep hearing so much now about Sharks along the coast, and was wondering.

In Africa people catch the massive Bronze sharks from the shore, has anyone ever thought of trying it from our beaches for example Chesil?

I mean, I no it would be alot longer wait for a Shark as they aren't as abundant as they are in Africa, but with the right gear. It would be quite an experience. :bb:

After seeing 'THE COVE' on TV the other night, it makes me believe there probley are fisherman out there somewhere actually catching Dolphins as sport fish, it really wouldn't surprise me.

But then...if you did fish say large mackerel baits for shark, do you think you are risking either a Dolphin or Seal taking it instead?
