Default Bleeding a shark

I've heard that if you bleed a black tip, it will taste better. How do you bleed a shark? How quickly does it have to be done?

Default RE: Bleeding a shark

It's true. As soon as you decide that you are going to keep the shark it should be bled. Especially while the heart rate is way up, get the heart to pump as much out as possible. I like to cut the tail a few inches ahead of the most narrow part like a hinge so that it doesn't disconnect but still all the way through the main vein, hang it over the side and let it bleed out. Then I like to gut it and cut it into steaks with an electric knife through the cartilige between the vertebrae about an inch thick. Freeze individual steaks.When it comes time to eatcut the meat from the cartilige into chunksmarinate in lemon/lime/orange juice then season with whatever you like I prefer a hot/chipoltle type seasoningand thengrill/smoke.

It's good stuff.

You might want to repost in a Q&A section as the hurricane info probably won't get much traffic.
