    i agree, hopefully they were for a picture, and then released. on most charters we do we will set a size limit,(well above the minimum) then place a mark on the side of the boat. that way when the shark gets leadered with his nose at at the mark, if his tail does`nt pass the transom, he goes free.

    The minimum size is 4 and a half feet, it would have to be a pretty big guy to hold one up like a bluefish!

    4 1/2' MAKO is only about 70 -80 pounds
    Holding it up isn't that hard.
    The lines on the hull are a great idea.
