Shark Fishing

There is nothing more impressive than feeling your line come tight with an apex predator on the other end! While fishing for sharks in offshore waters can often be complex, Island Fly’s backcountry shark program focuses on safety, connecting the angler and the shark for a quality experience rather than a numbers game.

Island Fly is a catch, tag, and release operation and all sharks will be released without removal from the water. We utilize traditional techniques such as chum and chunking to attract the sharks, and then spin or fly gear to start the dance!

We fish the tidal creeks and inlets bordering the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge and the Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve where sharks are popular residents.

Island Fly is permitted under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Atlantic Highly Migratory Species Permit with Shark Endorsement and has partnered with the world’s largest cooperative fish tagging and research program, Gray Fishtag Research to foster conservation and education among anglers.

Inclement Weather

We are not afraid to fish in the rain. It is the decision of our guests if they wish to continue with their trip or reschedule at a later date.

Adverse weather forecasts or events (high winds, large surf, hurricanes, etc.) are considered a force majeure, and will result in the cancellation of your trip at the discretion of Island Fly. All canceled trips will have the option of rescheduling at a later date.

COVID-19 Policy

As outdoor professionals (with an epidemiologist as owner), we are continually evaluating the global and local situation around Covid-19. We know our customers have concerns around the spread of the disease and we take those concerns seriously.

The response to the Covid-19 pandemic at Island Fly is dynamic and evolving based on the current state of the pandemic and the position of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). From wearing masks, to limiting the number of anglers on the skiff, to our disinfection practices, we maintain the highest level of vigilance around Covid-19.

We ask that if any member of your party has any respiratory symptoms (cough, nasal congestion, shortness of breath) or body aches, sore throat, or loss of taste or smell to please give us a call to reschedule your adventure.
