San Diego offers a shark fishery like no other place, right here in our own backyard, within miles offshore, you have a chance of sight fishing for Mako shark on the fly. These amazing sharks have the capability of peeling drag off your reel at speeds of 35mph while jumping and flipping up to ten feet in the air before hitting the water and doing it again. In my opinion, they are the most impressive game fish to catch on a fly rod.
The San Diego waters are a nursery for the Short Fin Mako shark, which is why we will see many sharks from the 80-150 pound range. It is not uncommon during season to bring ten sharks to the boat in a single day. We feel that we have the power to help the population of Mako shark thrive hear in San Diego waters and in many other parts of the world by spreading the word and raising awareness of the Mako sharks ability to be an amazing sport fish without having to take them from their oceans.
