A collaboration with Mike Smith, owner of Smitty's Surf Fishing out of Navarre, FL. This 20ft Shark Rig is ideal for shorter deployment drops over drop-offs and past 2 or more bars in the surf. This rig will handle ledge and sandbar rubs and keep you connected until your shark hits the sand. Perfect for 6-8+ foot Sharks. This Leader can handle much bigger sharks as well!
