Since the shark thread has turned into a ray thread, here is a ray I caught in the late 90s near SLP. I was shark fishing with a large sand trout as bait.

Yes, however for any normal sharking from the beach I highly prefer straight 400lb or 550lb mono leader with circle hooks. Get a lot more bites like that and circle hooks very reliably hook into the corner of the mouth and don't need steel anyway.

When tying mono to steel, always use a swivel. Cable will saw thru mono and wire will slice it like a knife.
At the end of your mono leader, use a longline clip. That way, changing out steel leaders will be as simple as clipping on a new leader. Use a float to mark your line. If you get a run or your bait has been out a long time, you can kayak a new baited leader out and not have to reel in your line and start over

Not the surf but the nearshore shrimp boats have more spinners and blacktips than you could want. I drifted one shrimp boat and saw one spinner breach and within a minute of drifting out a ribbonfish I was tight. Just collected my line back and broke it off at the boat. Probably 80#-90# spinner. Could have probably sat and caught them until exhausted.

We are on Matagorda Beach just about every weekend during the summer. We have been catching tons of sharks. Mostly 2-3' blacktips and spinners, but happen to land one in the 4' range about every other trip. The kids love catching those sharks.

That is similar to what I use but I put a little bigger loop on the cable and don't use a swivel. I longline clip straight to the loop. I can also use multiple hooks for bigger baits like that. I use the swivel on the mono end that I tie to my mainline.

I also use your method. This clips are used on my float lines and the swiveled cable is for a cast out rig.

Catchall made a ton of money after that regulation change. I've got a box full J's and SS offset Circles that I don't know what to do either...

Shark fishing from shore is one of those hobbies I've always wanted to pursue. I'm already below average at so many other outdoor activities. Not sure I can add another

Agreed 100%, except I run 700# mono... just a little more umph I suppose.

My question for everyone is... how do you anchor down a big bait and be able to get your rig in after an all day sit without breaking your line or your back?? I used to use 1lb spiders with SS prongs but after sitting out for 12 hours it tends to bury itself deep into the sand. Nearly impossible to break free. Although, itíll sure keep a bait stuck even in some pretty swift currents. Just a PITA at the end of the day.

Iíve thought about using sacrificial weights tied down with like 25# mono thatíll pop off before the mainline breaks.

I've done it a couple different ways. In the past I've used the breakaway weight method like you described with pretty good success. I've also run a float line from the leader to a section of pool noodle. When you're ready to reel in, paddle out to the float, grab the leader, unhook the weight, then paddle in and reel in the bait.

Best way is the guys with a float and paddle out and grab it. I use lighter weights with 6 copper prongs rather than going so heavy. I make them modeled after "Big Lou's" style, lead pyramid with three sets of double copper on the end. Do NOT make them the size of normal weights, lol... Use the smallest you can get away with, they stick like glue but once you bend out the copper they'll come in readily and when you catch something you don't have a 1 lb sled attached to the line complicating things.

I usually just weighted baits with a 8oz. spider weight. If the current was strong I tied on another one.

I've never done the float method, need to try that out though. I usually use 1lb spider weights and have used the brick and light mono method a few times. They all work though.

My floats are simple 2 or 3 liter bottles painted orange and half filled with expand a foam. Thread 200lb mono into a small hole in the cap and tie a bolt to it. Stuff the bolt into the bottle before adding the foam. When the foam sets, the bolt will act as an anchor for the line. Super glue the cap onto the bottle. I use about 20ft of line, which is stored inside the bottle.
After I drop my bait, I clip my float line close to the main line on my leader. Float line will play out on its own.

It's awesome when your line gets cut by smaks and the like. Just paddle back out and retie. Also helps to spread out baits. You can see where your last one was dropped

Sounds like a win/win situation right there, I'm definitely going to give it a shot. Saves alot of money when you aren't losing the rigs and weights and bait.

I use 480lb mono on most of my rigs but I'm only targeting sharks 4 to 7 foot. Have only been cut off twice out of well North of 50 landed. With circle hooks 90% of the time none of that mono leader is going to end up inside the jaws so you really only need to be concerned about body rub. Use a leader 2x the length of the biggest shark you think you'll encounter. Bulls especially will roll up in the leader and if they touch your shock leader/main line they're gone.

I'll stick with steel. On a boat, mono will probably work 99.9% of the time. But on the sand, things are different. Too much time and work involved to have that one monster fish get off due to a mono leader. May have a lesser chance of a pickup, but a greater chance a keeping a hookup.
Pulling back or to the side of a fish has different dynamics than pulling up. That's why our gear is so extreme. Simply said, carrying a 100lb sack 50 yards is so much easier than dragging it the same distance

I was fishing a surf tournament and it took first place beating a 7' long 168# Bull.

My favorite bait was live mullet as big as I could get, and I put as many on the hook as I could fit. I usually used several hooks on the last 24" of a 20' long 1/8" steel cable attached to 80# Trilene Big Game mono. I had 13 big mullet on for bait when I caught that Hammerhead...looked like a lost stringer of fish.

Sharks have a great sense of smell, but they have an AMAZING sense of electro-reception. They can sense LIVE bait even when they are upcurrent, unlike the dead bait most fishermen use.
So whats the story behind the Raccoon in the picture?

Same experience here, probably 80-120 sharks over the years on mono leaders and circle hooks all from the sand or jetty. It's not about the strength of the line it's about the circle hook grabbing the corner of the mouth, the line has to be big enough to withstand tail whacking and skin abrasion. I had one trip, one specific trip, where we had 4 leaders bitten through and have no idea why except maybe a much larger than normal shark cruising in the area and I didn't have any of my large combos with us that trip. Aside from that one trip I can't recall another time we ever lost anything to a mono leader. Having said that, I have steel cable with big J hooks when we break out the rigging needle for targeting large sharks.

Oh it's been a few years, haven't even looked up the regulation changes. I lost interest in beach sharking once I started on a fish camp out of POC, much more interested in chasing trout out there in the surf. We just do some small sharking on casting rigs now when the kids want to play around and soak bait.

I hear you brother, the new Regs make no sense to me. I love getting out there early and paddling out some big baits and then hitting the surf for some of those big yellow mouths while I wait for that clicker to go off.

About the same. Don't know about the extension though. I've been at work, so haven't kept up.
But next year, we gotta get the team together and meet up in my neck of the woods mid June.
Landed 5 and left them biting. Same time last year, had more runs than I could count
