I just don't want to be in the same water as them things smile

Was on a long range tuna trip out of San Diego 22 years ago to Guadaulupe Isle off Baja. Back then the island was famous for the yellowfin tuna fishery there but it soon became famous for what the yellowfin and sea lions brought to the island, Great Whites and cage diving.

If 3 of us would hook up an 75-80lb yellowfin at once 2 would usually lose their fish to a red cloud when a Great White hit it. They literally circled the boat waiting for someone to hook up then got an easy dinner.

We fished the island several days. One night we caught live squid to use for bait, the next day while baited up with a squid off the side of the boat I watched as a 15' Great White scarfed it up. I had no leader as I was tuna fishing, just a circle hook on 80lb mono with spectra backing. That Great White would have been in excess of 1000lbs. The hook lodged in the corner of his mouth as the line held. I went ahead and walked around the 100' boat a few times with him just to get a feel for being hooked up to something of that size. As for him, he either didn't know he was hooked or didn't give a crap..he just kept circling the boat..I finally cut the line on his skin..one thing I learned, you don't EVER want to go swimming at Guadalupe Isle!

High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

He looks a little poor and may be hungry.
May not be good news for the swimmers on SPI

Yup!
They are BADAZZ

My son hooked up with one last year off the Packery Jetty and fought it for about 2 hours. Got it within 20' of the rocks when it turned and snapped the line with it's tail. He had an 7' steel leader and he estimated it was over 9' and probably over 10' long.

And that, folks, is why I don’t go in the water at the beach anymore. I know what’s out there!


I'll pray for your goat.

Have they rebuilt Bob Hall yet? I hope to retire back down there someday. Met my wife in Corpus and we used to go fishing in the evenings on that pier for mackerel after work. Fun times..
