    I think hamburgers would be a lot better than sand sharks, but if you put enough garlic on a shoe you can eat it. I been running a sport boat and managing this landing for years and never knew the things were any good to eat.

    Drew If you bleed them like a big cat then they are good on a grill. But what they were most likely catching was sharp nose sharks. The belly meat is strong and I would not eat that part but if you filet them out like a catfish and cut the “Rib” part out you will have some good filets and good eating. I like to grill mine but they are great baked also just cook them like a catfish.

    Never fished for them or seen one live. I would think they feed on crab or squid.
