Default RE: Bleeding a shark

have to agree with all of the above. Prompt attention will insure great eating. Ooh, and of course we always soak in buttermilk before cooking on low/med heat.

Not to derail, but that sucks on the new regs.Our ideal size is 36 - 42" blacktip; makes great grilling, or shark kabobs. We've developed about 2 dozen dippin sauces for the little critters. I guess we will re-think our strategy on the bigger sharks.

Made hook and line the only allowable gear for harvesting sharks and prohibited the use of natural bait when using multiple hooks,



What is that about? Double hook rig and you can't use "natural" bait??? Meaning fish?

<P class=Body>New shark regulations took effect January 19, 2010 statewide for all recreational and commercial harvesters. These regulations:<UL class=Body><LI>Prohibit all harvest of sandbar, silky, and Caribbean sharpnose sharks, <LI>Require sharks to be landed in whole condition, this includes landing sharks with heads and tails intact. <LI>Established a minimum fork length of 54 inches for all sharks except Atlantic sharpnose, blacknose, bonnethead, and finetooth, as well as smooth dogfish; <LI>Made hook and line the only allowable gear for harvesting sharks and prohibited the use of natural bait when using multiple hooks, and <LI>Commercial updates - changed season dates, required wholesale dealers to have a federal permit, and closed state waters to commercial harvest when ASMFC or NOAA Fisheries closes adjacent waters. <LI>Effective March 23, 2010, all harvest of lemon sharks in state waters is prohibited.</LI>[/list]
I haven't caught any big sharks, but 54 inches is plenty big enough for me. Guess I'll start carrying when I'm fishing. I'm not putting a live 54 inch blacktip in my boat. He'll have two holes in his head before he hits the deck. :blownaway Then I'll go to carving his belly!

Not sure why he would edit this before posting, or if he just copied and pasted from somewhere else. Look it up on MYFWC.com<P align=left>There is no minimum size limit for Atlantic sharpnose sharks, blacknose sharks, blacktip sharks, bonnethead sharks, finetooth sharks, and smooth dogfish, all other sharks must be at least 54 inches long (fork length) to harvest or possess.

Apologies...now I see where it contradicts itself between the web page and the guide. The web page doesn't exclude the blacktip, but the guide does (pages 11 and 17). I've contacted the FWC for clarification and will let you know when/if I get the reply.

The guide is correct I believe, at least according to the official rules on the state website (https://www.flrules.org)



The text which is actually on the books is found at https://www.flrules.org/gateway/Chap...Chapter=68B-44



68B-44.007 Size Limit Applicable to State Waters.

No person shall harvest in or from the waters of the State of Florida at any time, or unnecessarily destroy, any shark of fork length less than 54 inches, with the exception of:

(1) Atlantic sharpnose shark ? Rhizoprionodon terraenovae.

(2) Blacknose shark ? Carcharhinus acronotus.

(3) Blacktip shark ? Carcharhinus limbatus.

(4) Bonnethead ? Sphyrna tiburo.

(5) Finetooth shark ? Carcharhinus isodon.

(6) Smooth Dogfish ? any species of the Genus Mustelus.

Rulemaking Authority Art. IV, Sec. 9, Fla. Const. Law Implemented Art. IV, Sec. 9, Fla. Const. History?New 1-19-10.





MyFWC says the rules were implemented on January 19, 2010, which is consistent with the date on the rules posted on flrules. Since both the printed regs and the state website agree, I think it's pretty clear that whoever wrote up the blurb on the new shark regs for MyFWC accidentally dropped blacktip from the list.
