Boat
1964 Uniflite 16ft. (Wild Sherry)
Fished all day and not a dang thing. Water was and wind was calm and the sun was shining. perfect fishing day. At around 3 moved to the edge of the kelp between the pier and the point and all of a sudden started getting our 80# dacron sheared fishin the bottom. The wife hooks up, and brings to the boat, a 4ft mako, Just before the gaff is set, the line snaps. Then my pole goes off and finally bring another 4 footer to gaff, drew blood but it shook off. We went though 11 or 12 bottom rigs with SS wire. Then it quit as we ran out of our last sardine. Watch you toes swimming because they are out there.

You planned on gaffing a 4 ft mako?

So... can you clarify? You fished offshore for makos, didn't get "a dang thing", then moved in close to the kelp line where you proceeded to hook several makos in dirty water near the bottom???

    I doubt Spiny Dogfish were busting you off on 80#
    If you want to keep a 4' Mako it is quite legal to do so.
    Delicious as well I might add.
    Though I would prefer you c&r'd Makos, I have less problem with you keeping one than I do the dorky ass posts on this thread.

    Watch Steve Irwin's doc. on the worldwide slaughter sharks (one of his last.) If you can then stomach the idea of contributing to the decline of the top of the food chain, well then go for it. Darwin would say that your type won't be around long anyways. BTW if you like fishing other species, you'd probably want to do some hard thinking about the trickle down effect when a predator is removed (or nearly.) JM2C.

    Did you watch the recent fear-mongering shark week?:shithappens:
