seems sad they couldnt release it. no need for trophy pictures on the dock.
i know some fish die when you bring them up from the deep because of their swim bladders, but i don't think thats the case with sharks.

I've never had a problem with fishing and eating what you've caught, done it myself lots of times.

But in my very humble opinion this Tosser has crossed a line, and killed a magnificent animal, just because he could. You can't tell me he ate it.

I put him in the same league as the morons that enjoyed shooting all the Lions and Tigers in Africa, and all the others that still enjoy shooting things because they are too stupid to enjoy themselves any other way.

like... he knew he was going to get a half ton shark when he put his line in the water ... maybe youd better stop fishing for anything to be on the safe side just incase that was the only shark we have left ..
