    Hammerhead, Gut you can relate to this.

    Was leaving the island I work on today, and saw this shark being weighed on the truck scales entering it. Yea the pics are crappy, but I didn't have a lot of time to set these up. Anyways, tarpon season is starting, and there are numerous sharks around feeding on them.

    I guess there is no point to Tarpon Tournaments, then. I don't even fish, so I won't get into that converstion.

    I agree, I only keep what I can eat. I don't agree with killing just for sport.

    Anchovies, though - that's a whole different sport.

    That makes me sick. Such a majestic animal being hauled around like a piece of meat.

    Agreed. Sharks have an important job in the ecosystem.

    if it was on ice and they planned to eat it, ok. but i get the sense that it's being towed around in the sun that it's a waste. they should have all their tires stabbed with a screw driver, followed by their liver.

    Wow, sorry I even posted this. Didn't realize this was a PETA forum, and there's one less Sea Kitty here. It's a fish, and I don't think they are on the endangered list, unlike all the Eagles, and other wildlife around here. Get a grip people, it's called sport fishing for a reason, and as I said, I don't fish.

    yeah that's a nice one, those tarpon really pull the hamerheads into the pass. I hope no one is stupid enough to go scuba diving w/ them this year. I'll be going for my birthday.

    complete waste of an already declining predator species. do some research on shark overfishing.

    'sport' fishing...try catch and release then.

    Maybe in some countries that harvest sharks for their fins but i dont think there is a shortage of hammerheads in the Gulf of Mehico.

    The guy that caught it is now a celebrity. There's a story on CNN.

    I expected the Rocky Mountains to be a little rockier than this.

    I was thinking the same thing. That John Denver's full of $hit, man.
