Default Eating Blacktips

Casting for bait today on the kayak and a 3ft blacktip t ook the lure. It was a very small rig so it took a while to get him in the boat, long story short he died. I dont keep them ever, but didn't want to kill him for nothing so I cleaned him up and Ive got him soaking in milk now. Are they good to eat, and anyone have a favorite preparation?

They are a great eating shark. I usually bleed mine first thing and clean after he pumps himself dry. Soaking in milk or ice cold salt water helps too so your on the right track. Fantastic on the grill or in the oven. I've tried cooking it in the stovetop but it never comes out right for me.

I used a 4fter for bait a couple weekends back. bleed out on the hook and soaked for about 2 hours before i had to go. steaked it up and filleted the tail section. no soaking on ice or milk. tastes really good!

if it does taste like amonia and you weren't able to clear the urea track, iced brine water with lemon takes care of it. the acids in the lemon over power the amonia and the salt keeps the meat from falling apart like it does in fresh water.

When the shark dies, it's urine starts to soak through the meat, that's why folks will cut the tail off and "bleed" them. I will automatically gut them when I get them boatside then let the water wash e clean an cooler em....Dern good fried and blackened. Next good 1 I catch, I'm gonna try shark jerky!

Caught another on a poppin cork and gulp this morning. The little juveniles were killin the mullet at Johnson's beach on the flats. It was pretty awesome to see, there were a bunch smashing them out of the water. They were eating ANYTHING that got close.

I caught a 5 footer last night from the beach, and I wasnt sure what to do with it lol. I ended up letting it go, and after a few minutes of reviving it and flopping around in the shallows, he finally got oxygenated and swam off like a hoss. Sounds like I should have eaten him!!! Do you guys cut the tail off while still alive to let them bleed out, or kill first? I have no clue when It comes to sharks. Gutting them from a boat sounds good too.
