I have been fishing in Panama City Beach every year for the past 15 years or so, and have never had a lot of luck. I am 23 years old, and have never really had anyone to show me the finer points of the how-to. I have a kayak, and 3 surf fishing poles as well as a penn senator 6/0, penn slammer combo for shark fishing. I have made several rigs for sharks that I found on line (including this forum). Basically I would like to know what the best bait (that I can catch from shore) would be for sharks as well as anything else that may be within 500 yds of the beach. I am going the first week in July near Laguna beach (the west side of PCB) and August 18-25 on Thomas drive about 1.5 miles from St. Andrew's park pier. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
