laugh We just tag them and let them go. A buddy does nothing else anymore but charter for shark fishing. Great whites during the cold times and Hammers , tigers and bulls during the summer. Right now its quiet. I'll go out for a hammerhead in a couple of month or so when the water gets a bit warmer.

Some sharks are good to eat-not sure if those big ones are used for human consumption.
In Ireland the Sweet William(dogfish) shark is very good eating.

80 lb tarpon on a hand line while trolling. I had scars on my hand for years from when that thing hit.

I regret catching a big catfish from my pond, 90x90 foot and 12 feet deep. It was big when I moved in 10 years before and as I feed the bluegills it would come up and eat with them, sometimes eating a small gill. One day after a few beers I decided I was going to catch it and see how long it was. Caught a small gill hooked it on and when I saw the catfish feeding I pitched the gill in and the cat gobbled it up. It was a good fight and after landing him and measuring it at 25 inches I released it. A couple days later he was float on his back in the pond. That's the only fish I regret catching. I wonder how old it was.

I caught about a 24 inch northern pike in the fall of 1976. There were five us on a grouse hunting and late season fishing trip. We had a contest for largest fish. I caught this pike and we measured it, it was the largest one of the first day. One of the guys in the other boat asked me to hoist it up so they could see it. I put my hand through the gill and when it flipped hard my hand slipped and my fore finger slid into the big back teeth and sliced the upper portion of my pointer finger from the tip to the first joint. Could hardly get it to stop bleeding, lost the fish and even today the scar is still there. Two days later I caught a 28 inch musky (not legal then as the size limit was 30 inches) and thus did not count for largest fish. The winner won with a 26 inch pike!. The cut was like a razor cut and I have never hoisted a pike since or musky.
