Not sure I follow you hoss. How was it not possible to dehook at the waters edge or cut the cable in broad daylight versus dragging it up 10 ft on the beach? Seems like more work to me.Regulation states--release the fish while it is in the water "when possible". It was me and my 98lb wife so that wasnt possible bud. Dont come on here and try to interperit regulations to me.
Hi darsinika,last year they had to bring a front loader to pick up a half dead 12 foot hammerhead to take and bury that some asshole brought onto sand and then the tide ran out.
I have to laugh at this.It was me and my 98lb wife so that wasnt possible bud.
Darsinika is referring to my fish, he did the same in the original report.I "heard" it was closer to 14ft... not that I saw anything.
at first I thought we were referring the one that washed up at the pier. there's been a few hammers that had to be buried between panama and Pensacola the past couple years. one was found on the beach with its jaws cut out. a couple died and were reported and one giant one mysteriously washed up at the pier....Darsinika is referring to my fish, he did the same in the original report.
Tape from head to tip of tail was 137", if we'd taped contour it might have measured 13'+.
I wish it'd been a 14' fish :notworthy:
Yeah, I just don't see how someone can consider themselves a shark conservationists when they throw two ropes around a shark a pull it 20 feet into a pier. Poor little guys...
fortunately, I've never done that. I've net a few off the pier before but no lassos here.Yeah, I just don't see how someone can consider themselves a shark conservationists when they throw two ropes around a shark a pull it 20 feet into a pier. Poor little guys...
Anyways how have you been, what part of the world are you in now days?
Besides the protected status of hammers I don't really see a difference. There are way more Bulls swimming the shallows of the panhandle during the summer than hammers and there have only been a hand full of attacks in the past decade. The last one I remember was some kid got bit on the foot and said it was a hammerhead.Personally, I think it's ridiculous to catch and kill a hammerhead. Bull sharks are dangerous to everyone so...hell yeah...but hammers....no thanks. They are beautiful and they just don't bother beach tunas all that much..
