I have released quite a few Mako's that I was leary about bringing onto small boats still alive. I know the jackass case you are talking about, but I would be tempted to drag him backwards to drown him if I wanted to harvest one.

If you go to a fish distribution center, you would be amazed how many big frozen logs get shipped out every day to the franchise cheapy fish chains. Dog sharks are small, I'm talking 200 pounders with no head, tail or fins.

Cuamanta meaty fish soup is a big seller in Mexico. Tastes like turtle, but they are manta rays. Big breakfast seller for hung over men.

As long as it is legal to harvest (size, sex and season) who cares, nice catch and hope to harvest one also, are very tasty on the grill.....

Not judging anyone here, but I wouldn’t have killed it unless fishing a tournament. Mako is one of the best eating fish in the ocean, but a fish that big tastes like crap.

A buddy of mine caught a 400 ish lb mako on a charter out of Venice LA years ago and came home with coolers of steaks to give to friends. I took a bunch and it was terrific eating. As others have said, similar to swordfish.

You're the first person I've ever heard say Mako sharks taste different if they are bigger. I've only eaten smaller ones, but I've known people to eat bigger ones and no one has ever said they were bad. Are you sure about that?

He's probably saying that because so many other fish end up with worms and tougher meat when they get too big. I won't keep an AJ over 30 lbs because I like the smaller ones better and they have a smaller chance of being full of worms IMO. I am assuming this and it's just my opinion. I don;t think pelagics fall into the category of larger are less tasty like some others. Aj's Redfish, black drum, specks are the ones I like when smaller and not as much when they are giant! but way more fun to catch the big ones!

Saying they taste like crap is going a bit overboard but there definitely a difference between a 125- 200lbs mako and a plus 300.

About 20 years ago, I had hours to burn in a small port town on Long Island while waiting for a friend to get back from NYC. About 10 am, I saw some guys bring in a mako that I would estimate at 300-400 pounds. The dock was behind a restaurant and I learned that the owner of the joint was one of the fisherman. Crusty dude but I think we all are when retuning from an all night trip.

When the place opened, I sat at the bar and asked for some of the mako. They said no, no, then no and finally no again. I just hung out until the owner walked out and said he would sell me a mako steak for $15, a lot of money for me at the time. I took the deal and the mako steak was AWESOME. So maybe the big ones are not as good and that was the only time I had mako, but brother it sure was tops.

As for all the virtue signaling about this particular mako. I say bahhh and I say congratulations to the angler. I bet it is a great story to hear.
