Planning a trip to Galveston mid June for my first try at shark fishing. I'll be fishing from a Yak and was looking for some advise for launch sites close to good fishing. Looks like I'll be fishing my blue cat rods with 6/0 circle hooks on 50lb mono with 6' 100lb steel leader. Thinking two on the bottom and two under a balloon. Fresh cut mullet sounds like the best bait. For my bottom rigs I'm thinking my blue cat set up should work. It allows your weight to be on bottom as bait floats 1'-3' up off the bottom. Just not sure how currents my affect this set up. Sounds like I need to be in the ditch past the third sandbar if the clear water has pushed that close. Does anyone create a chum slick? Any pointers or advise would be Greatly Appreciated.

It sounds like you want to fish BTB for sharks. Sharks show up in numbers during the warmer months. BTBers are already catching them now. Go to the BTB section of texas kayak fisherman. Those guys know their stuff and are the friendliest bunch!

I go out there a lot. my favorite spot is san louis pass. the current is usually pretty strong but there is always sharks around and you can drive right up to the water.... good luck and maybe i will see you out there....
