    If we do catch a big mako what is the best way to tie it along side the boat for proper release in either La Jolla or the Bait Barge?

    Just drag it over the rail - it'll lay there till you get where your going.

    Sure, we're gettin' raped good with the whole MLPA sitch (and yes, that's a whole discussion board in itself...), but if Makos had tag-limit, slot limit, one per year, C&R only, whatever...it would do the Mako population a lot more good than the current regs.

    On top of that, we need to remove limits on the damn seals & sealions, or like 5 per day harvest... use 'em like dead horses, to make Purina dog food... just sayin'... :2gunsfiring_v1:

    I tried that once with a Mako and it went ape shit. How about a bang sitck with some ketamine to help it relax for the ride home.

    paul im sorry to inform but you are way wrong. makos love to eat sealions. any shark 400+ will kill and eat one.makos are programed from birth to eat them. they only have to kill a small # of them a year to sustain themself. thats way its important to have alot of sharks around.i know they eat them because i have found them inside makos.and we have tested baby sharks

    I read about maybe 7 or 8 different Diet pages on pacific shortfin mako and none say they eat seals directly although it does say they eat dolphins and are opportunistic eaters and will eat just about anything in the water.

    Food: Mako sharks feed at the top of the food chain, preying on a range of pelagic fish and squid including fast-moving fishes such as swordfish, tuna, and other sharks. The diet is varied and opportunistic depending on locally available prey. Recent examinations of stomach contents of makos landed off California have demonstrated an increasing importance of jumbo squid (Doscidicus gigas) in their diet.

    just have a size limit, that would stop the retards like the guy that keptt the 35 pounder off Dana point the other day from keepin it. atleast a length restriction, if you cant measure it, you are a pussy anyway....all the macho kill it all tough guys should have np problem with that..

    ps...i know that was a thresher off Dana, you can also put a tape on the length of a gaff. If you have to measure a 80 pounder, you shouldnt take it. I am on the board of Oceana, we raise millions to fight the japs and illegal quotas taken in europe, tons of illegal blue fin by the way. The sharks, especially directly effect the
    sea lion population around southern california. Not as much as nor cal though, but who fishes there anyway, it effects us all. You cant yell about seiners if you take small sharks, there are fewer sharks and they breed slower...if you have negative shark shit to say, go fuck yourself and grow up...out

    Telling people to grow up when you are categorizing people as Japs. HMMM.. Anyways.. Moving on. Fuck it if you dont like it dont read the fucking posts this crap is fucking retarded. Like mentioned before its bullshit that a 80lb T gets the knife and that guys a fucking POS a guy kills a 544Lb hes a dick theres no way of pleasing everyone so if you kill one and you plan on posting get prepared for all the whining and complaining that comes with it.

    I agree. Only a very large mako would attack a sealion. In the old days we called them ''bonito shark'', for obvious reasons.
    White shark are the pinniped predators.
    Even so, releasing the majority of all sharks is a good idea.Legal catch prevails, however. Don't go hating on an angler for keeping one.
