On my boat "Bad Attitude" I have just a few rules.One rule is a mako has to be at least 125 lbs. The other rule is only one per trip.I had to argue with a guy I took from work once because he wanted to keep a 25 lb pup. He told me"look at all that meat." Needless to say the pup was released unharmed.Its guys with this mentality that scare me.If he had a boat,that pup would of been in his cooler.There are alot of guys like him.Those are the kind of guys that need to be educated on this matter.We only make about 6-10 shark trips a year,last year only went out two or three times.My crew might only take an average of three makos a season,I don't see a problem with this.When I fish alone inshore I release everything I catch.A mako steak on the grill every now and then don't seem like a bad thing,in fact I can go for one right now.Guys,use your head.
Release a fish every now and then.
