Angler Lands 12-Foot Shark From Florida Beach

Florida angler Dan Ficocello heard about the recent incidents at Flagler Beach: a surfer bit in the side; a swimmer rammed in the leg; a chunk bitten out a surfers’ board. So he went to the beach, paddled his kayak out about 250 yards out to drop a barracuda head, then paddle back and waited. Eventually he felt a tug, and three and a half hours later landed a 12-foot, 4-inch hammerhead, weighing 543 pounds. Read the full story here.



I went to the link and read the article. The comments there made it sound like the hammerhead is an endangered species, is that true? I tried to find the answer and it looks like some organizations call then endangered. Im from up north and don't get anywhere near the ocean but didn't think the Hammerhead was endangered.


Im not sure if they are endangered but I dont think you should kill a magnificent animal of such proportion unless its being used for food,leather etc.. I know shark is delicious on the grill but ive only killed small 3 to 4 foot sharks for the table. I dont even know if larger sharks are fit to eat. someone let me know.
