Fishing in the intracoastal waterway is much different from fishing in the Bahamas. Here is a list of fish you can catch in the ICW: sharks, rays, tarpon, flounder and sea-trout. But we’ve only caught some of these fish. The first one we caught was the gossip tail catfish. It was very easy to catch so I tried to catch something harder like a shark. The first shark we caught was an Atlantic sharp nose shark. We caught it at night but it was only 1 foot long so I wanted something bigger.A while later we caught a 4 1/2 foot black tip shark. When we were bringing him up on our boat, he bit the leader off and got away.
After that we started to try to catch a ray. We set out the rod and after a while we had a ray on. It was the hardest to reel in. When we brought it up, it was a butter fly ray. Here are some pictures.
