Actually the sharks are in real trouble in the Sea of Cortez. It wasn't that long ago when it was not uncommen for a shark to take the better part of a nice fish, and right next your boat. Today you can't hardly catch one if you try.Well there is shark left, and plenty.
Black tips are delicious, I have never had the hammer or the mako. I wounder what they taste like?:fish:True that. Very rare to catch a shark. Every now and then, I luck out on a certain secret reef during a certain time of the year and it's loaded with blacktip reef sharks, which are very good eating. I never keep more than two. Other than that, you're lucky if you occasionally see a stray mako or hammerhead come around the boat once in a great, great while.
In front of the Mayan Palace i used to see more Rays than anywhere else.....I wonder how many escapees from the timeshare pitch have been nailed while trying to escape by sea?Some people say that the huge numbers of the smaller ray's is because they are not being preyed on by sharks any longer.
