Hunt/Fish: Spinner Sharks Invade South Florida!

If you’ve never been spinner shark fishing you are missing a lot of light tackle fun. Spinners show up in frickin’ herds of hundreds, if not thousands, every winter in South Florida.  They’re not too big [max around 120lbs], but they put on quite the display when they’re hooked… breaching … jumping … and you guessed it … spinning.  The migration is on as the report and video below shows! Come and get some.  Contact Capt. Gavet Tuttle at  Tell him sent you.

PALM BEACH, Fla. — Area beaches are closed to swimmers after thousands of sharks have been spotted swimming along South Florida shores.

Marine biologists have spotted tens of thousands of sharks from Boca Raton to Jupiter since the start of the month. They say the marine animals are moving north, after migrating south for the winter.

Chopper 5 spotted hundreds of sharks swimming along Palm Beach this morning.

On Tuesday off Midtown Beach, lifeguards spotted a school of spinner sharks moving through the area. The red flags quickly went up, meaning swimmers could not go in the water at that time.
