It would seem. It is better to catch a shark than being caught by one.

61" black tip shark. I chartered a boat exclusive last year & we went 12 miles out. Had the time of my life! Bought a 12 pack of BUDS & by the time we got back into port there was only 1 left. Caught a total of 6 black tips and 1 seagul that nose dived for the bait.

Nice!! We caught a hammer head when down in the Bahama's. No sooner did we get it to the boat the guy that owned it pulled it aboard and knifed it from one end to the other and flipped it back in the water. Guess he was not a fan of hammer heads

From what I hear hammer heads are not as aggressive as other species. Black fin's is not an aggressive shark but known to nip at waders in shallow water. Dam, I really would have liked a hammer head.

I always had heard that the hammerheads were the most aggressive...
