    Well.. had the rare opportunity to fish with Ucsdsu last night and he said he wanted to target a shark and/or pests.. cool, grabbed half a bonito I had sitting in the bait freezer and took off... Caught a couple varmints while we were waiting for full dark, put on the wire and got to it. Some vermin were out, kept us busy til right before high tide. Busted off one (shark jitters on the spinning rod) like a couple rookies, prepped the conventional rod and calmed down. Got the second hookup a bit later, we took it easy and landed this one. Took us awhile to land, and she took a tumble in the sand. She was bleeding, so we harvested her. Bled, soaked, hung, always a process, came out delicious though..

    Wow, sharks are such beautiful creatures. What kind is that, a smoothhound?

    Nicely done! I would love to harvest one of these days. I always heard though that the stress from the fight makes them push sulfur type substance into their meat and spoils it. Or maybe it was Ammonia?

    Either way, I know you got the technique down to make it tasty.

    Kesepton .. soupfin are relatives of white and mako sharks, we still gave it a full treatment, even though we may not have had to. Bleed, soak in saltwater, hang them up awhile in the air, then ice or cool as soon as possible..

    Sweet! Good to hear they're still hanging around. Haven't harvested one yet, too lazy. I hear they're delicious though.
