Blacktips & lemons in the Key's, pole right up to them during their afternoon siesta, drag a live crab across their head, poke 'em in the eye to wake 'em up.

Our guide showed me how quickly they come around one day. We killed a cud, butterlied it & hung it off the transom. Within 15 miuntes we had around 10 sharks near the boat.

Of course, I may have been hiding behind the center console as one that my buddy hooked left the water about 3' from the boat!

Or, they come flying out of nowhere to snack on your baby tarpon.

I love sharks - great fun, need to get a boat & see if I can bust my #14 on one.
