The Predators Turn Out To Be The Quarry in Shark Sportfishing

I was eight years of age when I watched the movie Jaws and it wasnít until seven years later that the situation was to be turned around through shark sport fishing. Right after seeing Jaws, I was scared to go in the water. A few months later, I recognized they wouldn't come near you in shallow waters unless youíre in a movie or extremely unlucky. But for years, I thought that sharks were always superior to mankind. That sharks destroy human beings but not the other way around.

I was eight years of age when I watched the movie Jaws and it wasnít until seven years later that the situation was to be turned around through shark sport fishing. Right after seeing Jaws, I was scared to go in the water. A few months later, I recognized they wouldn't come near you in shallow waters unless youíre in a movie or extremely unlucky. But for years, I thought that sharks were always superior to mankind. That sharks destroy human beings but not the other way around.

Imagine my ecstasy when I realized that the hunter can actually become prey. I was fifteen when I found out I can track down sharks and Iíve been tracking them since that time. Itís like payback for my childhood lived in dread of the shark removing my limbs, letting me expire slowly, but definitely.

I really like shark fishing. I donít know if it is because I understand I can be superior than the shark or because itís just fun. But while I really like being superior to the shark, it wasnít enjoyable when I saw pictures of how Taiwan fishermen were getting rid of hoards of ďbiologically vulnerableĒ sharks. These are sharks which are a bit of weaklings, not exactly the Jaws type.

The Taiwanese shark fishing is for the fins to maintain the Chinese specialty of using sharkís fin as a delicacy. To be honest, I loved shark angling but I donít do it commercially. It was a hobby that would take 1 shark in one week or possibly two. Destroy one for dinner then put back one to live and propagate.

If you see the photographs acquired by the Pew Environment Group, you want to think twice about going shark fishing. Itís really awful, taking a look at those de-finned and bleeding sharks left on the side of the road. Some are even chucked back into the water to perish. These fishermen are animals. They should be thrown into the water.

It brought to mind an image taken in Japan of fishermen eradicating dolphins and whales in shallow waters to supply the sushi industry. Tsk, tsk. Many Americans really love sushi, me, included. But once I saw that photo, I just quit consuming sushi.

As for the commercial shark fishing, the Taiwanese Government promised to create stiffer restrictions on this. It wasnít mentioned how but what was clear was that de-finned sharks should no longer be thrown back into the sea.

Fly Fishing Tackle Assessment: The Hardy Zane Ti

Dec 20, 2010 - 4:22:08 AM

Since I am an avid fly fisherman, I'm quite fascinated with how fly fishing tackle changes. As of late, I've learned about an ideal reel produced by Hardy, the Zane Ti. This is a reel that many anglers, myself included, are only able to hope for, simply because it was a limited edition style which carried a hefty price tag of £5500.00, that's right, £5500.00! For the sake of letting everyone know what a fishing reel at this price includes, this is a brief write-up on what you can anticipate from a reel of this particular quality.... [Read the full story]

Coarse Fishing Tackle Review: The Shimano Catana 2500 RA Reel

Dec 20, 2010 - 3:27:57 AM

In case you are a coarse fisherman, then you know the struggle of tracking different fish species. When you're out for barbell, bream, dace, perch, pike, grayling among others, your coarse fishing tackle must be as versatile as possible. Because of the fact that you're a coarse fisherman, you'll usually need to adapt very quickly to a variety of fishing spots, baits and strategies. For my part, I like pike since they put up a tremendous fight and give a rather good challenge. It doesn't matter what coarse species you may be partial to, you're going to need tackle that's both long-lasting and effective. Since I can't afford to buy top-of-the-line fishing gear, I'm constantly on the lookout for excellent tackle that's affordable. I'm getting... [Read the full story]
