How do you know that? I not only know many ladies who are of comparable aesthetics who love fishing, but some yummy mummies like to get into it with the family too.

Water looks pretty calm to me in every photo, calm seas and mild conditions are no match for a straightening wand and hair product from what I have seen. I do not think fake boobs have anything to do with fishing, or the state of ones hair, so they are just a plus the way I see it. Boobs don't hinder fishing do they?

Hrmmzz, maybe the last two are fake, but I do not see indications of that in the others.Posted Image

They fish with rods you know, they do not dive in on the back of the sharks and wrestle them into the boat. Now that I am thinking about it...........

It might be a good idea to ger Governments involved properly. The Australian Government make a big hoo ha about whale when the Sea Shepherd is on telly, but they have Dolphins in parks for entertainment across the county, yet New Zealand has outlawed this for some time. We are backwards with regards to cetacean management, but make a big political deal. I think people need to really care at the top, not the recreational weekender. I think Julia Gillard does more harm in one day to out marine environments than those lovely ladies could do in a lifetime. Or even a bloke with a little wee wee and a big boat.

It's not an insult to have a little wee wee, it here for our pleasure, not yours, you lot keep getting that bit mixed up. :lol:

You have no idea what kind and where I buy my food ,and have for years.
The MEN as its only MEN who do this kind of fishing ,all seem to be compensating for some small pathetic ,and I do mean smmmaaallll ,thing ,or so it seems .

The news said it took them hours to reel him in . Do they have a nervous system ?
So they have nerves . Nerves make us move,and feel pain . Do they move ?
It's been proven fish feel pain .People keep saying they don't to make themselves look less barbaric the way they treat them .
There were no reports of a rash of mako attacks ,where this fish had to be stopped .

Man is descimating the oceans ,and all anyone does is oww and ahh when some pea brain spends hours torturing some poor animal to death for a photo op and he won't need Viagra tonight .
.

No it hasn't.

http://news.national...s-fish-science/

And frankly, the mere fact that it took them hours to reel in this shark tells me that it doesn't feel pain.  If someone hooked you in the mouth and gums, would you be able to resist with all of your might for hours on end?  Probably not.  And you know why - because you feel pain.  And anecdotally, I've been fishing for more than 30 years and I'm convinced by the reactions I've witnessed that fish do not feel pain.  Heck, a good deal of the time a fish doesn't even know it's hooked and only reacts to the angler when they are stopped from going where they want to go.

As was stated above, it's also important to point out that these guys weren't actively targeting sharks.  They were simply fishing and may have had full intention to release the shark, but sometimes you simply can't depending on how they are hooked, etc.  And perhaps their efforts to donate this shark to research will end up saving thousands of other sharks and improve our fisheries worldwide.  I'm assuming you don't have a problem with that?

As to your other point, I love to pose in pictures just like this.  And contrary to your opinion, I have no problems in the performance area and am above average in the other area you mention as well.  I'd be happy to give you my wife's email if you'd like to inquire with her directly.

This amazing predetor was slaughtered by some dimwits that wanted their 5 minutes of fame and their names in the record books! The fact that a mako shark of this size and weight hasnt been seen or caught before makes it extremely special and rare. Some people have been commenting on the fact that we as a human species have fished the oceans since the time of neanderthals but they failed to mention that there werent nearly as many neanderthals as there are humans in this day and age and we have decimated the oceans with overfishing and pollution. Many species have been overfished almost to the point of extinction, our rapid population growth and supply and demand on the fisheries industry have done irreparable damage to this delicate ecosystem. We should stop raping the earth of all of its valuable resourses, sharks are a unique predetor and they are being wiped out they are a very important species, they have lived on the earth for millions of years and have helped to shape the oceans food chain and ecosystem. If people are interested they should watch the award winning documentary titled 'Shark Water' It gives an insight in to the decimation of the shark population and provides irrefutable evidence of the damage and destruction that is occuring in our oceans.

I see what you are saying, but on the other hand, how many ocean dwellers are saved without this giant in the water?
In a unique way, this was helpful to ocean life.

Myles its all part of the oceans food chain. The majority of people are horrified when they here about a lion being hunted, and people dont say well at least a few antelope or a couple of zebras will be safe now. What im trying to say is predetors are there for a reason to keep natures unique and delicate balance from collapsing.

I understand that.    (I'm saying this without thorough knowledge of the current ocean structure)  With less seals, whales and large fish, doesn't it stand to reason that there should be lass predators for these animals as well? Using your lion example, what if the antelope were hunted to 10,000 left and the lion population was at 4,000.    Wouldn't it be wise to limit the number of lions?

Just playing devil's advocate here, nothing personal.

Man it sure is a big one!
But it's not the largest one ever.
The biggest one of the shortfin mako sharks or "blue pointers" was caught back in 2001, near the shorelines of Massachusetts. It weighed around 554 kilograms.
And the biggest shark ever  was a  great white, caught in 1959 in Australia, weighed around 1200 kilograms :yes:

Nice try ,but no .
I used to fish when I was young . Fishing clamming crabbing .Did em all .even shucked clams,all before I was even 12  .My uncle owned a boat and a place on the water in Amityville. I know how you look when fishing ,so nice try ,but not realistic at all . This is extreme fishing. Chicks in bikinis and perfect hair ,who are posed with just caught huge fish,didn't do the fishing.  . But you searched and found models posing with fish ,not women who actually do extreme fishing .Anyone who isn't a completely gullible git,can see that .
My pole is still in the basement .


Anyone who looks at models posed with anything ,as they would fit in just as nicely with a motorcycle or car,posed,can see,they're posed ,not fisherwomen  .
Theyrre not even wet . You don't land a fish that size without a fight ,and a lot of splashing .

Well it looks like sharks and are so primitive that may not feel pain.

"Research on nociception in fish has focused on two main groups, the Elasmobranchii (cartilaginous fish, such as sharks) and Teleostei (ray-finned, bony fish, such as trout). Anatomically it would seem that Elasmobranchii are ill equipped to sense noxious stimuli because in a wide variety of ray and shark species very few unmyelinated nerve fibers, compared to myelinated fibers, have been observed, the opposite to the situation in mammals"

"More in-depth knowledge has been gathered on Teleostei, where the occurrence of free nerve endings, suggestive of nociceptors, has long been known"  In other words, most other fish do feel pain.

So as long as they are not an endangered species, have at it.

I will never really understand the love of fishing or posing(with big smiles)next to dead animals.

I used to go out fishing and crabbing when I was younger but when I was about 12 I felt sorry for them. I threw my handline in and felt a bite and pulled up what looked like fish guts. It probably wasn't but it made me feel like the fish had swallowed the hook and I had pulled the insides of the fish out. So I thought the fish was now dying in the ocean where just a moment before it was happy swimming around. So I felt very bad and sorry for the fish and I never really fished again after that.

Anyway pity the shark was caught. At least they have a disgusting picture to remember it by.
