Those sharks that size can be a lot of fun on lighter tackle. The blacktips are usually good to eat too. If you want to see some big sharks close to the beach, go out on one of the longer piers when the tide is high right after dark and look for a while. There are some monsters! The state record tiger shark (over 1000 pounds) was caught from Yaupon Pier (now Oak Island Pier).
