How Long Do Sharks Live Out Of Water?
Posted May 02 2007 - 01:19 PM
I've been noticing that some of the sharks me and my fishing buddies catch live for hours outside of the water. The other night we caught a shark around 8:00pm and well after 11:00pm the shark was still breathing(its gills were moving) Is this normal?

It isn't dead till it's on the grill.
Please be careful

Was this on your boat? Perhaps a happy surprise while looking for browns?

Taken slightly out of context that is an awesome quote
I have seen some ANGRY blue sharks going for peoples ankles.
Japanese Tuna fishermen have a specially designed spike they drive through the cortex, works for me with a fishing knife if you are decisive enough but I can imagine needing a few goes on a big shark and it might start to look a little horror movie like.
Don't know why you would want to keep a shark but that is a different discussion.

Had a killer year chasin browns in the kayak. You'll get that cobia, there seem to be more around every year. Last year heard of 8 cruising around a bell buoy in your fishing neighborhood, maybe a bit further offshore though.
