You are aware that some sharks are totally protected, right? Get yourself a Shark ID Chart so you can tell what you have hooked up.

I released it. Never brought it out of the water. I don't kill things I don't eat. For your information I was fishing for Grouper and this is what I ended up with . Not really illegal now is it. Now isn't that nice.

My point, in case you hadn't noticed, was that you were on this forum asking what you had hooked up. You are supposed to be able to identify the fish.

is that if I can't identify it when I hook it then I will not boat it which I did not do. I came here trying to educate myself further with the help of some very nice people who usually respond with decent answers. I believe that is what this forum is for. Apparently today I have found a full fledged member of the douche canoeing team. Thank you for your superiority.

Capt Lindsay the OP caught a shark so you make a comment like that. Come on with all the different sharks most of us can't identify them all. Its part of the sport and he was fishing for grouper. If you want to be a shark protector then go talk to Obama and see if you can be a new ambassador to the shark population otherwise relax. No I cannot identify this shark so shoot me.

I can ALWAYS tell exactly what I have hooked immediately. Its a gift. If it is endangered, I just slack the line and is swims away. Its a gift, I know.
