    here is a photo of another large nurse shark we cought. The photo is not the clearist, the main reason i am posting it is to show how flexable these fish are. you can see in the picture how its tail is wrapping and bending sharply.
    One point to note is MOST sharks can not move this way, but nurse sharks are built to squeeze into tight spaces, they are one of the few sharks that can breath at rest.

    This fish was around 7-8' in length. we never got her in, I did have my hand on her tail and was pulling her to me when a LARGE lemon shark 10'+ showed up.
    we were baiting the area and using large jacks for bait our bait was 17" and larger :D
