Congrats, nice looking fish. Lots of meat there!

Given the diversity of the human species, there is no “normal” human genome sequence. We are all mutants.

Did U slice it up on the boat?.....my understanding is U can not bring it to the dock whole and slice it.....marcino does his while at sea....

I think common sense would dictate NOT cutting it up at sea. I don't know about you but I try and stay on the EP's good side. The shark was 100 percent intact sans guts until it made it home. As you can see by pic 2.

I poke it with a stick a few times and hope for the best. :P

She was pretty gassed when she got boat side.. Dragged backwards while retrieving the ball. (about 2 miles) then another 20 or so minutes. Nothing but our backs to get her inside the boat and STILL she was chomping.. If it was a mako I would have waited MUCH longer.

You never know for sure so we just treat it as if it can come back to life at any time. You dont want to remember a day you'll never forget for the wrong reasons.
