Default Tiger Shark at the beach

All I can say is this AM this Tiger was caught at the beach (can't say where just between P'cola and Destin):doh

I would estimate w/ tail and all he would be 6.5 to 7ft....Purty little guy/gal...Anglers say they fought him along shore fer about 1-1.5 miles before beachin' him.

I'm still waiting to get a tiger myself although I'll probably release ifI get one; I've heard they aren't great eating.

Small tigers are some of the finest of all sharks for eating they have a pork like flavor and do great on the grill. Great story thanks for the pics.

My oldest boy has been in Tampa since last Thursday and finally got to do some fishing this morning. They went on a charter to do some bottom dropping for grouper. He called me on their way back in and said he hooked up an eight foot tiger, fought him for close to an hour, got him close a couple times but too green to sink a gaff in him. The fish finally cut through the leader before they could get a gaff in him. He said the captain told him they'd caught several tigers through the years but his was the biggest they 've ever hooked up with. They caught a few short gags and a short red but ended up only bringing home a few mangroves. He's hooked though. Supposedly there's a pic of the shark but I don't have it yet. I'll post it when I get it.
