Even though I love to hunt and fish , I would only shoot a deer with a camera and catch fish to eat. As Rob says above , shame to see such a wonderfull fish killed in the name of sport or trophy. But I guess we all look at it from diffrent angles , so I guess congrats. on the big catch

Mrs S,

Don't worry about it. As with most things in life, some do some don't. Well done to the young girl.

Regards

Thanks Gramps, glad someone can appreciate the effort she put in.
It does taste nice.

I put it in the Webshots album as it is the only way I know to post a photo. Not to 'advertise' my quilts, they're not for sale.

Back to lurking not posting

Mrs S

Nothing wrong with your posting. Don't worry about these miserable layabouts they're generally OK but they do tend to get a tad jealous :))))))

Looks like you'll be on 'fish and chips' for a while then LOL

For the life of me I cannot see what some humans get out of torturing and killing innocent animals for their own pleasure. What did that animal ever do to you ?
What a waste of a life.
I for one would not be dissapointed if took your picture away and 'bragged' elswhere.

So Pezza,

does this mean you will be the one in the middle of Jacobs Well eating a Tabouli or Homous roll this weekend ? (I've seen you with 1/2 a cow on your plate around the campfire hehehe)
All opinions aside, a 99.5kg shark on a 10kg line....... good effort in my books.
I will not comment on whether its a good practice or not (to kill the shark).

Cheers mate.

G'day Trevor,
Mate I have no problem with 'killing to eat' , that's nature, however I do have a problem with people hunting and killing animals purely for their own gratification and ego. It was obviously a light line for that size fish, so how long was that poor animal being tortured for before it was landed and killed ? All so some hero could prove how big a fish they could catch!
No different to a couple of thousand years ago when the men always wanted to kill the biggest bull elephant in africa just to enhance their own bull$hit 'macho' image.
That "half a cow" died swiftly with a bullet through the head, big diference.
And yes, I may well be eating a homous roll this weekend beause I don't fish, I think it's one of the cruelest sports in our world. But that's a discussion for another day:-)
Notice the numbers are increasing, should be a good weekend.
See you then.

Avagoodn

When I was a young fella I was a hunter and a fisher, mainly because that is what my parents taught me.

Later in life I lost the urge to KILL other animals. (apart from the odd cat or sparrow).

No wonder the sharks get back at us humans from time to time

Funny you say that Willem. When I started Hunting , I was told to shoot stuff because it moves, as time went on , I also lost the urge to do so. Don't get me wrong , I still love to get out and have a shot , but have my own rules , that are to shoot only what i would eat and only fish for what I would eat. Mind you , I have sort of lost the urge to fish as much after I started diving . Note that i did say as much lol .

As sad as it is for us to see such a wonderful creature killed in the name of sport , I guess we have all done it as some stage and wondered what the fuss was when people protested about it.

I do hope that the like flake and eat the shark, then at least it dosn go to waste like the sharks that get killed for shark fin soup.

Not going to bother with the "to kill or not to kill" arguments but the poster did say

"It does taste nice"

So in the end, the same result as others who choose not to. :)))))

Mrs S,

I'd be proud too. That's a top catch.

There's not a damn thing wrong with catching a fish for a feed.

Cheers,

Jim.

Glad you ate it, I beleive there is some bad Karma for taking somethings life just for fun. I dont eat shark as I surf and stupidly hope they will return the favor!!
Enjoying life and nature is one of our greatest privledges that no other animal gets to share. I'm sure your daughter recognised the sharks struggle as its own fight to live and she would've gain a valuble life experiance from it.

At least it wasnt undersize :) thats where the most fishing harm is caused!

Have fun in the sun.
