Is there a difference? Can you argue one is better then the other?

Andrew what do you mean by better. Maybe more are caught on the Gulf coast and bigger ones are caught on the Atlantic. Maybe more anglers fish for sharks on this coast then the Atlantic. Which side has more world records. I would think that the sharks on the Atlantic coast would be bigger. The tides are much stronger and the forage is bigger. That coast has a bigger genetic strain of snook. It is not uncommon for them to catch a 50 inch snook. Here not many.

Capt. David hit it pretty dead on with his response, in my years of traveling and shark fishing throughout Florida, we have divided Florida into 6 different "zones", all very different than the other. The Southwest coast definitely produces greater numbers of sharks, but the size of the sharks isn't as consistent as the sharks found on the eastern seaboard, that doesn't include the Panhandle region of Florida, which we believe is the most fertile shark fishing ground in America, that includes numbers, size, and consistency. The Atlantic coast, however can be feast or fammine, right now it is pretty terrible over here, but there has been some nice rogue specimens caught as of late. But when it turns on over here, it is hard to beat. But unfortunately in the Southeast region of Florida, shark fishing is frowned upon, and a lot of trips here are fly by night operations,as the sport isn't accepted here like it is on the southwest coast. Though there are big fish to be had on the west coast, timing needs to be impeccable as well as the areas you target these beasts. You have fewer shots with larger fish over there too, so you need to be prepared and do everything you can to help maximize your opportunity to land one of these fish when the opportunity strikes...Hope that was helpful in some way! lol! Tear em up!

I predict a solid season, with the quarterback situation hopefully stabilizing, i'll be able to get a lot more touches than last season, maybe even a playoff berth for my raiders depending on the lockout

Hoping your quarterback situation stabilizes, give my highschool buddy Jacoby the opportunity to blow up into an allstar for you guys.
