1. a hammerhead will take a human as well

and i would not dive in a school of black tips either.

great use of a drone btw. i wonder how close are his estimates of 5-6 ft for black tip and 12-14 ft for hammer head.

2. I didn't know you could eat sharks of any kind.

shore fishing for black tip. 5 or 6 feet? That takes a LOT of strength, and a great rig.

3. i like fishing from the beach

but more likely a pier or jetty. asians eat shark, i'm not sure what kind. the fin is a delicacy.

i would rather catch a few flounder or pompano than any kind of shark. i really like the wily and elusive speckled trout. ever catch a gaspergou? get a shrimp close enough to a barnacle crusted post and they are not bad at all.

7. Yeah, the name you used is common in Louisiana, I see from Google.

Cajun influence, I guess.

They are delicious, we use fiddler crabs for bait, makes it harder for them to steal the bait!
Watch those teeth, though!!

8. I once took diving lessons. We were to get checked out in the Gulf of Mexico in the waters near

Gulf Shores. Because of a passing front, I was not able to take my airplane. Naturally, the next day when we were to go diving, the weather was beautiful. I was disappointed, so I went to the airport and rented an airplane and took some students along for the ride. Flying over the area we were to go diving in later in the day, we saw a large hammerhead in the water.

When we returned, we told our diving instructor (who was too scared to go with us in the plane) about the shark. Thinking he would say something to the effect of "ah, they're not that dangerous," instead he said "Those things got an attitude, man."

When we got out to the diving site, I decided not to go in the water. Everybody else did though.
