I like shark meat, I used to fish for them and keep one or two every year. But those hanging up could not be eaten. You have to prep a shark when you catch them or it's like eating out of a toliet...only worse.
I have written letters and made phone calls in the past, not any good, I was told they would have to increase the entry fees ect so it was a no brainer. I'm all for keeping legal limits, just don't like to see the waste. This attracts $$ to the area. Many people think it's ok because it's sharks. (man eater and all) You can bank on it getting pulled if it was trout/bull reds ect hung up to spoil.
Does anyone know if any study has been done on the sharks caught? At least it would not be a total waste if information was collected.

Actually it is ignorant rambelings like this that amaze me every day. Yes we are tree huggers and members of PETA move along now and go back to building sand castles or something..

Looks like the tiger to me. Theres not a doubt in the world that big shark populations are declining. Just ask anyone that fished the 50's-60's. The reason why you don't see people with 12/0s-16/0s on the piers anymore is because THERE AREN'T MANY BIG SHARKS LEFT. I've been told by some old salts that back in the day when they caught 3'-6' sharks they would just cut them in half and send them back out with 2-5 hooks in them because these sharks were so common. A 6' shark is pretty darn good from the beach/pier nowadays. Obviously there are still some bigger, much bigger, but on most days you head out to the pier you won't see a shark over 6' caught. If you look at random sharks caught from piers/beach that are over 10', I'd guess at least 80% of them would be before the 80's. With the exception for the mako and thresher (extremely uncommon near shore), there hasn't be a broken state record in over 15 years. I've seen 5-6 people say this, and 3-4 people completely ignore it. ITS NOT SO MUCH THAT THEY KILLED THE SHARKS, ITS THAT THEY WASTED THEM. I'm done.

i don't belong to "peta," but i am an outspoken proponent of conserving our natural resources, and not killing strictly in the name of "sport." i eat the fish i set out to catch. it is the ignorant whom do not understand this philosophy that need to be educated by those of us that do (which is most 2coolers).

fishing will never be outlawed, but there may come a day when there are no more fish for you to catch.
