It was not Guaymas - but north ( Choyudo ) sp ? ( Near Kino area )

Caught in a net by accident , and dead when hauled in - not much fun for the fishermen as the bureaucrats are all over them , agree sad for the shark and us as it was an awesome specimen .

I was at the next village down the coast friday from where it was landed and it was pretty clear to me the locals believed it was an unintentional catch - we don't know if enough of the carcass survived filleting to allow a post mortem to figure cause of death but the authorities were very active from what I was told.

Puts a whole new spin on kayaking offshore :-)
