October 12th I head down to Grayton Beach, FL for a weekend trip. I have planned to fish hard for big shark. I hoping to catch at least one Spinner shark pushing 100+lbs. After that I will look to catch kings, spanish, reds, etc. Just looking for some advice for my trip?

hey ben be careful, i wouldnt recomend going for sharks, especially in the fall with all of the different migrations going on can make for some really pissed off sharks. also not quite sure your experience with catching creatures that can not only turn you into a skipping stone, but can get ahold of ya and really hurt you, if your gonna do it keep a pair of scissors or a knife withing panicing reach in case things hit the fan you can cut the line and save your butt. good luck

There are a few guys with big toothy experience on Jax and GKF forums. Some may pop up here from time to time.
Sharp knife or quality shears is a must have. I hooked into a 6 foot sandbar or dusky back in June and it scared the crap outta me. high speed sleigh ride in rough water gets very exciting VERY FAST!!!
I went from happy as a clam to HOLY SH*T in .000002 seconds. It peeled of 150 yds of power pro before I could unclip from my anchor. I gained back most of my line when it turned toward the yak and I could see what I was up against.
I cut the line about 10 feet from the fish's mouth

Check out the Gulf Coast Kayak Fishing Assoc. web site. It is centered in Pensacola/Destin area and have numerous members fishing off the beach in Destin for kings, snappers, groupers and the occasional shark. Or head north across hwy 98 to Point Washington on the bay and fish for reds and sea trout. Talk to the guys at Yellowfin Ocean Sports (Ocean and Hobbie Kayak Dealer) in the Grayton Beach General Store, they should point you in the right direction. Good luck!
