Team Hobie (2/17/2010)My 2 cents:
A shark is never "worn out". I beach caught one a few years back and it was too big for the ice chest I had on the beach. I clubbed the hell out of it and then let it sit on the sand for 45 minutes to make sure it was dead. I was dragging it by the tail to the truck and the damn thing came alive and nearly bit my hand. (If you have not worked with sharks before be aware, they can bite their own tail and your hand on it). This shark sat in my big ice chest for another hour and was still banging around on the ride home.
Be very careful out there. I have caught big sharks. They can be docile...or not. As Ferd often says, a lot of things can happen on the water and 90% of them are bad.
