    They are slaying the pups in IB. Six or seven per day with many more lost. FB_IMG_1662044787799.jpg

    Didn’t you know Butch? Everything that gets caught off a pier dies. Haha

    There’s a new website, bloodypiers.com

    I do know it's tough to catch a decent sized fish and return it safely to the water... My grandson indecently caught 3 juvenile BSB off of Crystal Pier, but we managed to use a net, to raise, unhook, and lower the fish uninjured from and to the water... I don't know if that would be possible with those threshers though...

    Anything that gets hooked from a pier is as good as dead. Personally never understood the sport in heaving a chunk of flesh off a pier for sharks.

    Those roped wharf gaffs don't do well with catch & release

    The bag limits for shortfin mako shark (Isurus oxyrinchus), thresher shark (Alopias vulpinus), and blue shark (Prionace glauca) allow take of two fish per day with no size limit.

    As long as each valid person keeps within their take home limits, it's all good, if not, I have ZERO problems with letting them know while calling the CALTIP line (if they are over their legal limits).

    I certainly got a lot of weird/borderline offended looks from throwing back 90% of what I caught at the piers

    Thershers are cool critters. In the summer off NJ, often times we'll see a blitz and assume it bluefish. Sometimes it turns out to be thrashers. I think sometimes the blues are blitzing on menhaden (we call bunker, further north they call them pogies), then the threshers start blitzing on the blues. You can tell its threshers because you see they tails whipping around. Sometimes in the summer sharks get so thick that it's tough to avoid them. I was blind casting a small epoxy jig a couple years ago on relatively light tackle hoping to bump into a bonito when I hooked a black tip. Dang thing trashed my drag and gears, I was sore for days after fighting that shark. We were both so exhausted (shark & I) that when I finally got it in, neither one of us wanted anything to do with each other.
    I hope they're not killing them just for bragging rights.

    That’s the issue, most bucket brigader’s don’t adhere to the rules. Loveland for example is a joke when the bluegill and catfish are biting. DFG already gives you 25gill limit and when they are hitting, they are big. I’ve seen bucket brigader’s filleting as they go, hiding fillets in the backpack, hiking back up and coming down an hour later. I call when I get signal, it’s a joke

    Man that really sucks.

    I have no tolerance for people abusing the resource. When the bite is on, it's easy to convince one's self that the resource is endless, until it's gone, or damaged to the point of being near collapse. We've seen that happen to so many fisheries along our North East Coast.

    I'm a firm believer that if one is going to harvest an animal, it must be treated with respect, handled correctly and consumed. Killing something, and throwing it away later is unconscionable.

    On the other hand, I'll concede that if someone is harvesting legally, it is certainly within their rights and pretty much their business what they do with it. We just have to trust that the regs and limits are sustainable.

    Respectfully,
    JD

    Don't believe the hype folks, plenty of sharks out there. Just ask any kayaker who "hooked six yellowtail today"... Hahaha

    Someone hooked a great white off either Huntington or Newport pier, and was fighting the GW and Someone in a relay race was bitten by the shark as it was pissed off being hooked.
    It was all caught on video from the pier as Someone was recording the angler fighting the fish.

    I think they looked at pix and video evidence later, saw it was a salmon shark. Almost identical to a white at first glance

    Sharks are such cool fish. They do plague fishermen sometimes eating the catch while they bring them in.
    When we used to fish off shore banks in New England for cod, big blue sharks would ocasionally grab a jig or eat someone's cod on the way up. If they bit the jig and didn't bite through, what a battle. 1st time I hooked one I thought I had a tuna (that does happen every once in a while while jigging). The captain knew right away it was a blue shark.
    There's a species of shark off New England that's related to makos called a porbeagle. They're apparently very good eating.

    Do fishermen in SoCal ever lose their catch to sharks? I suppose that's what Werf was referring to about the kayak fisher the the yellow tails?
