I think the Oregon wreck is only about 15 miles offshore. That's easy with your boat. I caught about 6 makos there last season. You also have the Fingers that are maybe 20 miles out. Not too far from the Oregon. Just get yourself a chart that has the wrecks and you see them easy. You have Mastic Bait & Tackle and Silly Lilly Fishing Station not too far from you. They should have the charts.

Good luck,

Ray

Yes you can do it from a center console but You never know you might attract out there. I had a small mako jump into my ****pit many years ago when of my crew stuck it with a straight gaff. We had a bridge to hide in. No such luck in a small rig, its in the boat with the shark or the chum slick. Neither one is a great option.

Hey whatmewory,
You can do it in your boat but I strongly suggest you go out with veteran sharkfishers several times before atempting it on your own. Especially in a center conole. Best advice I can give you is NEVER gaff a shark(especially a maco) in the gill area as this will cause them to turn toward you and possibly jump into the ****pit. Gaff behind the dorsal fin area and take your time getting them in. Unlike tuna, you want to tired them out as much as possible before bringing them boatside. If you need to know more let me know. I'm no expert by any means but have enjoyed fishing for theses beasts for a few years.
