long fin IS protected...

not sure if you have to report one after catching it...



EDIT.... you may want to go to the edge and catch a bunch of blackfin tuna, then rig a whole one on a 50w and let 'er dig... i think that would be the best chance at catching a mako this time of year.... ooh, chum like hell.

I believe in fed waters you have to report I know you need the migratory permit. I don't know about state waters on the reporting issue. If you do get one report it to us anyway:poke They are very good eating I do know that much.

Longfin protected. Shortfin open game,HMS permit required in fed. waters(1 per boat per day I believe) but I would get the permit in case it drags ya out from state waters. Not required to report but I would. Good luck,be safe and watch out for the bullets in the steaks:shedevil
