    Hey, one of the idiots I work with showed me a picture of a large baby GWS that was supposedly caught at OB pier last week. Looked to be 200#+, maybe more. Walked it onto shore. I told him whoever caught that could be in big trouble for messing with that shark, but he shrugged it off. Anyone hear about this? Could be BS-

    Sevengill shark is considered very edible in most places around the world. Here's quote from a shark article about eating shark meat:
    " Not all sharks make for good eating, but there are a few that top the tasty list according to anglers, including: Mako, Thresher, Sevengill, Soupfin, Leopard, Dogfish, Shovelnose, and Blacktip." (bold added by me.)
    [here is the site: www.reelpursuits.com/can-you-eat-shark ]
    I ate it once years ago in Chinatown in San Francisco, and it was not too bad. Not my favorite fish, but not strong tasting or tough.

    Pretty hard to mis-identify a seven-gill as a great white. :D

    Jay's friend thought a Mola Mola was a baby whale!!!

    I had my son's friend on board one day. We just pulled a yellow off of a paddy, and he was looking in the water. A HUGE mola came up head on and he yelled "SHARK!" and dropped to the deck. He never lived that one down!

    It was a bad picture I saw, however, it did not look like a 7 gill. It looked like a baby white. The mouths are different. Having been harrassed by 7 gills, I know the difference. Either way, another fish story...

    Maybe shark is like beef. It needs to age a bit before it becomes prime"! LOL! A waste, not a fan of 7gills, but still...should have given a couple of hundred pounds to a homeless person! Man eating shark!

    if they can prove it to be his fish, the DFGW might be interested in speaking with him.


    It shouldn't be hard to prove it's his fish. How many 200+ pound 7 gill sharks are caught on that pier. And I agree....I would think that the DFGW might well be interested in the waste of the animal.

    It sorta reminds me of the schmucks who shoot pheasants, don't want to clean them (I'm too tired), and throw them out. (Hard to believe, but I've encountered a few.) Not the image that we want the public to have of fishermen and hunters.

    And did he have fishing license. He hooked it on the pier, but landed it on the beach. And let’s release a fish that you gaffes three four times. These type of “anglers” make us all look like shit.

    As usual it sounds like people are combining several stories into one and commenting on things they do not know about. There was a well over 200 lb seven gill caught on the OB pier and it was kept and not released. There has also been several white sharks caught and released in the last week. Not sure if from the OB pier though.

    Great white caught and released in the last 2 weeks, looks more like a jetty though.
