Sharks are caught while Deep Sea Fishing in Miami on the surface and on or near the bottom
Sharks are known as predators of the ocean and sea. There are many different types of sharks that frequent the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf Stream offshore of Miami, offshore of Miami Beach and offshore of the South Florida coast. Most sharks in Miami are strong and good fighters. In general, many sharks have sharp razor type teeth that are replaceable throughout their lifetime. They may feed on the surface, on the bottom or somewhere in between. Many different species of sharks can be dangerous because of their multiple rows of sharp teeth, their speed, quickness and strength. Many different types of sharks frequent the ocean waters offshore of Miami all year round. Because of their size, strength and power, shark fishing in Miami can be very exciting.
Sharks are generally thought of as offshore fish. They can be found in the Gulf Stream or inshore of the Gulf Stream. Since there are no fences in the ocean, fish, including sharks, can swim wherever they want. Although generally thought of as offshore fish they can also be found in inshore and offshore waters. Sharks are often found in Miami, Miami Beach and Ft. Lauderdale on the surface, near the surface or on or near the bottom.
