    how was he fer eating?

    looks healthy enough for sure.

    I understand they have to be blooded pretty quick, or the meat isn't any good due to the recycle of urea.

    also, looked like you had fun bringing up to the boat.

    concrats,
    Chris

    Was told don't eat. Meat is toxic.
    We released it after a few pictures.

    Your thinking of a salmon shark that has to be gutted right away.
    Best shark I've had was a mako!

    I thought that at first look too, but quickly I realized it couldn't be cause salmon sharks have BIG teeth...!!!

    He posted it was indeed a sleeper shark....
    Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

    Pacific Sleeper Shark - closely related to the Greenland Shark of the Atlantic. We catch them regularly when longlining for sablefish in the Sound.
