I only fish inlets for snook when I target them, so it came from an inlet. The bombers work well on the drift. 

Thanks Z. I recall now you mentioning that you prefer targeting snook at structure-laden locations. I much appreciate the advice.

what dehooker do I need for sharks?  I saw a 

Very long one at White’s tackle by Billy Black that was fairly pricey—do I need this one—is there one that you recommended?

 

Thanks.

This is what I like to use. ARC Dehooker. Very effective, quick, safe, and easy….once you get the hang of it. Can always practice on a hunk of meat. Make sure barbs flat on hook. To remove hooks quickly, it’s all a matter of visualizing the geometry of the hook in the sharks mouth, especially a circle hook.

Also what do we if we catch a shark with a tag in it?  I caught a tagged one tonight, but there was too much chaos going on for me to get the tag info.

Always try to get a quick photo of the tag number, or at least get the tag number somehow. This will be reported to NOAA via their Apex Predator Program. Or can just send info to me and I’ll log it for you…I’ll log  it for anyone.

Yes, I tend to get more of them around the moving water/structure locations like inlets. It’s deeper to accommodate those deep diving bombers. The tidal events in inlets can present with some satisfying action. They are usually running the beaches during our annual baitfish runs, or around any bait fish for that matter.

Is that a deep diving Bomber in that pic? I thought it was a regular Long A. Does it have the shorter lip or the really long lip?

I only use the Wind Cheater series (no affiliation). They are about the best that I’ve used in the inlets, easy to control, well balanced, great wobble, can maintain accurate depth in insane current…and the snook just luv them lol

Is ARC dehookers still in business?  Having a hard time finding the 34 inch model.  Thanks.

As I recall, the 34" was/is hard to come by. I have all of them and use the 24"  the most. I just don't like it so much because it bends easily, wimpy when in a fix. The 34" I've used on giant hammers and crazy tiger sharks, no problems whatsoever. But if you can't find one, then the 24" will suffice.

Southern beaches are fired up. Mullet run moving along strongly. The big mullet are starting to show up now. Sharks galore, slamming the poppers.
