We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.

People arenít supposed to look back. Iím certainly not going to do it anymore.Ē

I've heard people call them GW top-water lures. Always wondered if there was an extra attraction.

I had a shark sighting yesterday 7/20/16 at Linda Mar, just north of Pedro Point.  I heard a swish sound behind me as I was pedaling along.  I looked, and there was a dorsal fin, with a vertical tail fin, both sticking out of the water, maybe 20 feet away, max 30.  The distance between the dorsal and tail was between 4 to 5 feet, so 8-10 foot shark?  I don't know the species, but the tail fin was not that of a thresher or of a blue shark. 
Fish laugh when I paddle by.  Sometimes they laugh so hard they fall on my hook.

i once told an NCKA Brother that just got followed by one, not to think weak thoughts, they'll pick up on it and test you.   :smt009

Your actions were strong, so it swam away to seek the weak. Congrats on the "escape" and to live to fish another day.

I was hoping it would come back so I could get a better look!  One of my favorite parts with being on a kayak is to see the creatures we don;t get to see so close up, such as dolphins. porpoises, whales, and now sharks.  Never got to see one so close in the wild.  And it was funny to me that I was not scared at all.

A great white killed a seal in the south corner of Linda Mar yesterday, fyi. A bunch of surfers saw it happen I guess.
May the fish be mighty and the seas be meek...

Just for the historical record, not to scary anybody.  GWS attackes on yaks, one in Monterey, the other in Santa Cruz (see below).  It's been unusually warm ocean in 1st half of 2017.

I just saw this thread - see my recent GWS post in the General Info section - maybe the Administrator can move it to the appropriate forum.
