Southern Right washed up on the rocks in Warrnambool a few years ago. Took over a year before it was gone. Shark sightings/interactions still up - surfers and boating fishos. Fisho bloke I know pretty well has stopped surfing. Been seeing too many big whites
Well I'm sold. Correlations every time.

As buddy says. When it's opened by recipient it'll move to your sent folder. In the meantime, said recipient receives an advice that he's got mail.
Realsurf has been that was as long as I can remember.
It's a actually pretty good system.

ha ha magically the NPWS is digging it up today. "Only temporary" burial they said. So why didn't they say that originally.

That drone footage those fisherman took looks 100% staged. Obviously had burley in the crab pots.

Edit: never mind, the one in SA near Coffins? Found it.
Their crab net would have bait in it, like a Salmon or something

Looks like it's our turn now.

'Ripped apart by sharks': Dead whale washes up on Coast beach
15th Oct 2017 2:27 PM | Updated: 5:25 PM


WASHED UP: The dead whale savaged by sharks on Wurtulla Beach.

by Scott Sawyer

WURTULLA surfer and regular fisherman James Lazzaro says he won't be going into the water at his home break for a while, after a humpback whale calf washed up, ripped apart by sharks.
The dead whale appears to have been torn apart by sharks with huge chunks missing from the carcass languishing in the shallows of Wurtulla Beach, near the Wurley Dr beach access point.
Mr Lazzaro said he'd heard about the whale and went to the beach to check it out and was stunned to see the size of the whale and the holes missing.



Whale carcass washed up on Wurtulla Beach: Jamie Carvell was at Wurtulla Beach checking out the dead whale

"It's definitely been ripped apart by sharks," he said.
"I won't be surfing Wurtulla for a long time."
The whale is believed to have only washed up within the last few hours.
 

Mr Lazzaro, a stockbroker by trade, said it didn't appear to be a fully-sized bull whale like the ones he sees regularly fishing in the area.
"It looks like a calf," he said.
He tipped the calf to be about 30m long.
"The bites (taken out of it) were pretty big," Mr Lazzaro said.
While he couldn't estimate how big the sharks were that would've attacked the whale, he tipped they were fairly large.
"There were some pretty decent bites taken out of it," he said.


He said he'd seen the odd shark around Point Cartwright, but never at Wurtulla, and it was the first dead whale he'd seen.
"We've never seen a dead whale in our lives," Mr Lazzaro said.
He said he hoped the authorities took the whale either well inland or a long way offshore to dispose of it, to prevent blood and offal entering the shallows, enticing sharks into the area.
He said he'd only been game enough to take photos from a certain distance, as it appeared there were sharks at the back of the whale, even as it lay in the shallows, as he could see distinct 'V' lines in the water.
Coolum Coast Care president Leigh Warneminde said the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection needed to tow the carcass out to sea to dispose of it, but it was difficult to contact authorities on weekends to deal with dead animals on the beach.


They'd had a large dead turtle washed up on Coolum Beach earlier today.
"The best thing to do is to tow it out to sea," Ms Warneminde said.
Jamie Carvell and his daughters, Maya and Mia, were down at the beach checking the carcass out mid-morning while the tide was lower.
He thought there would've been a few sharks hovering around the body, and said it smelled "pretty bad too".
