    Last season on IGFA Saltwater Adventures in the thresher shark episode they talked about not touching mackerels with you're bare hands, one fell on the deck and they used a scoop to get it into the bait tank... Does anyone why they shouldn't be grabbed?

    Mako sharking?

    I love makos, they taste great and are a fun catch. A buddy of mine wants to go sharking in mid December, does any one know if there are still makos around at that time near the Carlsbad Canyon? What time of the year are they usually biting?
