Hi guys
chasing a large shark at the moment, 

wondering if anyone knows any spots that have a good track record, and that arent too hard to land a large shark at, 

hooked up to something big at north mole a couple months back, but was impossible to fight there so lost it after a 45 minute fight, 

also, is there a particular bait that works best, have got mullet, ox hearts and tuna heads already, 

is there a best time or weather conditions to fish in, or are sharks just every where, 

thanks, sharkhunter1

 They are everywhere mate, any fresh bloody bait will be fine and fish where you have a chance of landing them. Rock walls are a tough way to land one ...the beaches north or south of perth will all produce, wait until the winds and swell is low and drop a big bait out there..Swim one out before dark if you are game and have no kayak or surboard,lol. A big bait will mean you can just wait, as pickers wont take it.

thanks trymyluck, 

everyone keeps saying that but i have been trying for 6 months, and only had the one hookup at north mole that i lost, 

have tried casting, balooning and slide baiting, but dont have a kayak and arent crazy enough to swim a bait out, 

not sure if im doing something wrong or just having a bad run, 

thanks, sharkhunter1

 Cott groyne with a freshly caught ray wing. 


Seriously tho, any beach north or south of Perth should produce. My baits of choice are mullet, blue macks and bits of ray. 

Buy a cheap paddle ski on eBay for 50 bucks, that'll get the job done in calm conditions.

Not sure about massive sharks, but I've hooked quite a few big sharks from ballooning/live baiting on the bottom just in front of the reef near the end of Hillary's south rock wall. 
You will have no chance whatsoever to land a shark there, but if a hook up and good fight is all you're looking for then that is a good place to go.

The baits I use are whole dead ballyhoo while ballooning, or a whiting/trumpeter while live baiting on the bottom. If the wind is at the back then putting a live whiting or trumpeter under a balloon is the absolute best thing to do.

 Kayaks the best way and be prepared you can hook some serious Lumps and land them on spin gear but others I'll get spooled. 

Use salmon or big big mullet as bait or eagle ray
