No, the nets are pulled in winter Vic.

Not trying to alarm Loof, just posting relevant information to the thread.

Steve, they have always been there. Count yourself lucky you have gotten away with it so long.

Not in the case of white sharks Loof.

The number of juveniles/sub adult white sharks in this area is a relatively recent phenomenon.

Taking the kids for a dawny tomorrow.

Brother I prey for your children but those sharks, well they are just coming back. Go back past 80 years and there was plenty of them.

Didn't realise netting was seasonal along the Newcastle to 'gong stretch

Reliable anecdotes have the numbers up here too. Difference is, rather than juvenile/sub adult, they're big fcukers. The inbetweeners are somewhere near Loof

DPI Fisheries advise: tagged white shark detected by Sharpes Beach, Ballina receiver at 03:34:00 AM (AEST) on 15-Aug-2018

DPI advise 2.29m White Shark tagged and released from SMART drumline at Joggly Point, Evans Head at 09:11 am on 15 Aug 2018.

DPI advise 2.38m White Shark tagged and released from SMART drumline at SEVEN MILE/LENNOX HEAD, Lennox Head at 02:52 pm on 15 Aug 2018.


`interesting to me is that most whites caught in daylight, sunny day hours.

Data should be enough to quash the suggestions that dawn /dusk are more dangerous.

A study of great white attacks in WA concluded that there was no pattern associated with morning, evening, sun, cloud conditions [Edit] or number of people in the water. They have no fear, are inquisitive and just cruise around doing whatever the fcuk they want

They're only baited during the day, Steve.

Yeah I know but they are baited early and pulled later than the hook-up times.

I watch the guy do it every day.

The sharks are using scent to find it, presumably. Takes a while for the slick/scent to disperse, and be tracked.

Dunno about dusk.

saw some guys down Sharpes beach the other afternoon with full game fishing tackle set-up.

Old mate was just about to paddle a kayak out near the drum-line with a snapper frame on a 14/0 circle to try and bait up a white.

He reckons he'd had three hookups with whites this season.
