LEMON SHARK

(Ne­gaprion bre­vi­rostris)

Sport Fishing - - FISH FACTS -

One of the most wide­spread shal­low- and warm-wa­ter sharks in the world, the lemon is a re­quiem — a group that in­cludes black­tip, spin­ner and oceanic whitetip. As lemons track across flats (as in Florida’s Keys), they will at times strike flies and lures. Un­pro­voked ag­gres­sion to­ward hu­mans is rare. The IGFA all-tackle record lemon, caught near Bux­ton, North Carolina, in 1988, weighed 405 pounds.
