    Smaller diameter guides are better. Low riders or Fuji KWSG concept guides.

    Is 500 yards of 100lb good enough

    No, the shark will bite through it. Monofilament is made of plastic.

    Can you just put 600lb mono and double it up and just use that

    It should work, but I wouldn’t recommend using anything under 480lb. I have had blacktips bite through 480lb cable.

    Will using cable instead of the single strand wire be fine for casting in the surf for shark fishing?

    Can you just cast from shore or do we need to get the bait out some other way?

    Thanks for the nice video. Very well produced and easy to follow. My daughter (9) and I enjoy recreational surf fishing. We often catch small sharks and we would like to catch slightly bigger ones. Say Max 5-6 feet. We have fairly basic pinnacle 8′ surf rod. Could it be done? what else would we need?
