If you catch a mako from the surf, you'll have something to post about and I'll be the first to subscribe to that. Mako is excellent table fare.
People eat all sorts of other sharks frequently. Its certainly not the best critter you can eat, but if you're set on it, gut that thing immediately when you catch him. While he's still alive, get all the innards out. The meat will taste much much better.
If you don't gut it as soon as you catch it and you still want to eat it, everyone loves fried shark nuggets.

I don't know much about catching sharks but I think the Makos are usually caught offshore, is that right? I don't have any plans to keep any of the sharks. As you guys noted that's a lot of work. I would need to be with someone who has done all of that before. I generally don't keep many fish, I like to let them go unless it's a decent sized trout (under 20). Thank you guys for the information.Originally posted by DHill72
