Every time I've checked the shark sightings app lately there's been around 20 a day in Perth metro.

WTF?

The ones in the news at Whitfords were strange. Middle of day, 3m tiger in knee deep water almost beaching themselves. 4 separate sharks in a couple of days

Dunno. The clubbie on tv reckoned he'd been working the beach for 40 years and barely seen sharks there before

Its a dog beach, so its highly likely that a couple of pooches frolicking in the shore break attracted the sharks.

Maybe, I was thinking the beach was down near Hillary’s but it’s closer to Mullaloo

Do you still surf when there’s pings, toots?

Yes.
Just have the DPI on my Twitter feed and this lot looked like a bit of an anomaly

And IMO the receivers might be great for gathering data but worth bugger all for those actually in the water.

There's a lot of cray nets adjacent to the breaks around Mandurah and the owners have been reporting the unusual presence big tigers all over the place for a month now

Six days now. Thought they’re not supposed to hang around the one spot. That or it’s karked it and rolling around the bottom near the receiver.
