how big do these shovelnose

Tue, 2008-12-23 22:30

how big do these shovelnose sharks get and is this a regular catch during summer months ?

in S.Africa on the northen coast(durban) u find some monsters well over the 100kg mark - these are called gaint sandy's (there called sand sharks in SA) u also find the smaller cousin,there more light brown/cream colour and are found through out the coastline - these dont grow much bigger than 10kg tho . and can become a pain in the arse when chasing kob's/mulloway  .....  often catching 20 plus in a day, all realesed , still good fun to catch.
