Mo, they don't bite as bad the Barracuda!
Find a sand bar during low tide and come back to fish it on a night time high tide. Even better if you can find a tidal pool during low tide. " the kind the kids play in during the day". When they flood the sand bar sharks come in looking for a meal. Chunk of Mackerel on a circle hook.
I have two idiot friends that take kayaks just past the breakers in the daytime and chum for them. They swear it's a blast being pulled for a few blocks by a five footer. Not me, I'm staying on land :)
