Its just a bigger walleye...grab ahold and give it a good pop. They have grabbers too, but I’ve never used them. I’ve also never caught a shark over 5’-6’. Im sure I’d give a great White the rod and everything. “Take it buddy, I’m out”

I've had Mako steaks and thought they were very good... As many times as I've been fishing in the ocean, I've only caught plain old sand sharks, which are harmless.... I did do an overnight tuna trip out to the Hudson Canyon for tuna and caught a 175 lb. swordfish.... Damn that fish went fast everyone wanted swordfish steaks.... I'll say that fish fought like hell on stand up tackle.....

"J".... Yup, they went faster than bear steaks, although last year's bear was all gone last month... Gotta say I'm not a big fish eater, but those swordfish steaks grilled were great...

Yup, they usually cut the line. Too risky to try and use a hook remover. Most sharks are protected and it’s supposed to be released immediately without taking them out of the water. Mako is about the only shark people keep.
Back in the day I lived in Florida, we ate a lot of black tip sharks.

Most sharks are. I’ve also popped a few out using a gaff. Scariest part is waiting for your buddy to grab ahold of you barking like a dog...that gets me every time! 😂 I’m sure I look like this when it happens.
