HI

Me and my friends went fishing in this Thursday for bait fishing and we caught 4 sea cats and a Black tip shark.

The bait used for sardines and Squid on a wire rig and Mustad hooks.

This was our first shark and we were really surprised. The shark took out lot of thread and engaged the drag. The fight lasted 7-10 mins and the wire leader did its job.

The shark made me think that its big momma is lurking near the shore line and this scares me to some extent. It can grow upto 5-6 meters and is responsible for 16% shark attacks reported in the US.

I would like to know if this shark can be eaten (We did eventually). When we kept the shark in the cooler (It was deep hooked, and wouldn't have made it, So plz no C&R preaching) its belly developed some red patches.

Pictures are attached.

Tight Lines.

Hello Kashaif,

Sharks can be eaten.

In fact, the vast majority of the Fish &Chips sold on seafront shops in Australia have shark as the "fish" component ( euphemistically named as
flake).


It seems to taste OK - I would like to know how you prepared yours for eating?

Congrats on the shark.
Yes shark is edible and makes a super meal when boiled and shredded, with the correct masalas.
Down here in the south we make a "sura Puttu" ( Sura=shark, Puttu=shredded), which is yummy.

Superb catch.
They are one of my favourite when fried.

Sharks can be eaten but you need to know the correct method to clean and cook. They have a distinctive odor of amonia if not cooked properly i am sure no one can even attempt to bite a piece.

Yes there was a hint of some weird smell and taste, theres a thread on stripersurf which explains how to remove the amonia/urea.

Thanks guys for your replies.

Nice catch dude.

Dont have to worry to much about reef sharks (black tip). They wont attack you, nor do they grow 5 - 6 long :lol:

regards,
Keyur

They do grow up to 5-6 feet

As of early 2009, there are 11 unprovoked attacks and 21 attacks total (none fatal) listed on the International Shark Attack File that are attributable to the blacktip reef shark.

The persian gulf used to be full of sharks you yet find a lot towards the Iranian side close to Busher and Karg island and down to asaloyeh.I havent heard of anyone being eaten alive in the persian gulf ,guess you lot safer in the water then on the roads of some of the countries.Good catch there thanks for sharing.

Heliox,

I lost my childhood friend to a shark in Khorramshahr (near Abadan) in Iran,
I was only 7 yrs old and at boarding school in India when my father wrote to me about the loss.

Apparently, he was sitting with his legs dangling in the water when he was attacked. My father tried to rush him to the hospital but he died from blood loss enroute.

That stretch of the Karoun River is notorious for sharks and I believe the culprit was a bull shark (which can survive in fresh water upto several thousand kilometers away from the ocean - the Amazon River is a prime example).

I hated sharks for a long time after that but now realise that they are part of nature and we have to respect their right to live.

However,I stress to all anglers, please be careful around them.

Kingfish

Kingfish sorry about your friend a similar incident occurred in Goa a few years ago when a little girl was attacked by a Barracuda.She also lost her life due to uncontrollable bleeding.One has to be carefull while on water anywhere including rivers, splashing hands or feet tend to attract fish and in clear water humans hand end feet tend to look whitish from underwater more like small fish and that's really dangerous.We learn everyday and creatures have to be respected for its there world we are intruding on and not vice verse.People fishing freshwater read this http://iucncsg.org/ph1/modules/Publicat ... -India.pdf
