Fishing Thresher Shark

Fishing Thresher Shark

Thresher shark are noted for their long, scythe like tails that may constitute almost one-half their total length. Thresher sharks are found in Montauk, New York. They feed on squid and schooling fishes, attacking after circling and herding their prey into small groups. They sometimes use their tails to stun their prey or, by thrashing the water, to frighten it.

Thresher shark taste:

Thresher shark steaks make for a hearty, mildly flavored, simple meal similar to mako shark or swordfish steaks. These sturdy cuts hold up better on the grill or in the pan than flakier fish, and they do well under the broiler, too. Their high fat and moisture content help prevent them from drying out with dry-heat cooking.

The Halfback with Captain Art have been fishing the waters around Montauk since 1990.
