this is some good info. i have never learned the sharks, except maybe the blacktip, and really hate to catch the bastards. the only one i have ever eaten and enjoyed was the mako which we caught swording. really tasty on the grill with some lemon-pepper.Lemon fo sho. One way to verify that it's a lemon is the two dorsal fins that are about the same size. One that size will test your tackle and your resolve. Got him hooked just right.
sandbar has a really large dorsal fin, both have the dorsal ridge from the dorsal to the tail. Both are protected.. don't go by size, I've caught 8 ft sandbars.I've never tried a Mako, I hear they're great. I've eaten most of the inshore species and try as I might, I'm not a fan. Duskys and sandbars are the two I have trouble identifying. The only way I can tell the difference in the water is that anything over about seven feet is supposed to be a dusky.
Nope, #1 is because Realtor said it was a Lemon, and #2, the sand tiger has a more defined (elongated) snout, moreso than the lemon.Thanks for all the replies, no one mentioned a sand tiger shark, any chance it could be possible?
