Don't let it out into the yard without a leash, or you will be sorry.

let me guess you lost all of your guns in the fishing trip right???
Link Posted: 9/9/2004 4:37:11 PM EST
About 4 years ago I caught 3 off of mexico beach, not too far down the road from where you were. Small quiet fishing spot. Not too many hotels, so you have to stay in a crappy motel, but it adds to the experience. Hope you didnt keep all those in the boat at the same time if you kept them. What is it two or three is the max.
I hit them on the back of the head to stun them, then cut their heads off. Really good eating.

Nice catch though!

Guys this is a SHARK and Mako is correct. I also got some Black Tips. Was waiting on a Bull, but never came along.....

Didn't bring any guns today, though I could have used it to slow these guys down some. If you look, I am holding him way out from my body, you can never be too careful when a Shark is onboard.

Oh, the shark, babe, has such teeth, dear
And it shows them pearly white
Just a jackknife has old MacHeath, babe
And he keeps it, ah, out of sight
Ya know when that shark bites with his teeth, babe
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, oh, wears old MacHeath, babe
So there’s never, never a trace of red

Now on the sidewalk, huh, huh, whoo sunny morning, un huh
Lies a body just oozin' life, eek
And someone’s sneakin' ‘round the corner
Could that someone be Mack the Knife?

There's a tugboat, huh, huh, down by the river dontcha know
Where a cement bag’s just a'drooppin' on down
Oh, that cement is just, it's there for the weight, dear
Five'll get ya ten old Macky’s back in town
Now d'ja hear ‘bout Louie Miller? He disappeared, babe
After drawin' out all his hard-earned cash
And now MacHeath spends just like a sailor
Could it be our boy's done somethin' rash?

Now Jenny Diver, ho, ho, yeah, Sukey Tawdry
Ooh, Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Oh, the line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky’s back in town

I said Jenny Diver, whoa, Sukey Tawdry
Look out to Miss Lotte Lenya and old Lucy Brown
Yes, that line forms on the right, babe
Now that Macky’s back in town
Look out, old Macky's back!!

Thats when the fun started. We started throwing out dead croakers and then dropped a line.......

Doesn't look like a shortfin mako.

Sharks aren't common anymore.

I go shark fishing but never keep them.

I wouldn't bother keeping a shark unless you caught a monster like a 1000 pound tiger shark.

It used to be you could shoot sharks with rifles they were so common or so I was told.

The only shark worth eating is the shortfin and longfin makos. They are offshore.

My dad had a little black book also...everything moved after Opal. 27 years of hunting down underwater structures was gone in a day. Fortunately we have 2 charter capn's who are friends, they found some piled up reefs that are rich with fish. There is one south of P-city that is the size of a mall. It caught everything from the hurricane movement and made an incredible reef.

If you ever go bill fishing remember Desoto canyon is your destination..and run parallel to it.

Mobile Bay has gotten more and more shallower over the years, and both Dauphin and Sand islands are moving and shrinking as well due to storms. Thanks God for bottom readers and GPS!

Speaking of storms, I hope Ivan can't find Mobile.
