I have seen one breach locally twice now. Neighbor saw a juvenile diving carp point looking for sea bass.

there are a lot of sharks in this area kind of neat, tell your friends.

I'm liking the migration up the coast to our beaches. I have a client who lives just up from Santa Claus Lane on Padaro, and we go out and count fins sometimes.

First ever session at his house, he took me out and showed me 7 fins in the water around his house. That one stuck with me.

Pretty sure I've posted here before about the 12' and 14' ones I paddled with.

Shark fishing is a good thing. Make shark fishing great again. There's too many.
If my recollection is correct, that's exactly what they would do after an attack on the North Shore way back when. I recall Perry Dane and crew heading out on the hunt post attack and returning with usually a very large tiger shark located in the area of the attack. Seems like that would be justified in this instance. You'd think a few of the locals at that spot would take matters into their own hands for how devastating and gruesome the attack was on one of their comrades.

People have become stupid. Fish those fuckkas and make fish bites and steaks for the grill.

Used to be able to get shark served at restaurants. Locally we could get thresher shark and blue shark. I never particularly liked it but that could be from being over cooked as restaurants typically do with seafood.

Thresher and Mako on the grill FTW!

I am not sure the man-eaters are such good eating, though.

In my early years I sold a lot of mako which restaurants/stores rebranded as swordfish. Really hard to tell the difference if the skin has been removed, and of course the mako would generally be significantly fresher than the swords coming of the long range boats.
