Glad you're safe Rob! 

Not too long ago, one of my friends that's not on NCKA, hooked onto a juvenile GWS just outside of the Jaws while trolling for salmon.  I used to fish HMB a lot by myself....not anymore!
Just outside the jaws? That's crazy!  Any size estimate on the juvi GWS?

I forget how long but there were a few NCKAers following him throughout the whole thing.  They all came back looking like they saw a ghost  :white

Scary Stuff, I might consider picking one of these Sharktec cans as well.

Others had shared the 'eerie' feeling before an attack or a presence.  Did you get that feeling too?

No eerie feeling at all, I was truly enjoying the beautiful day otw. I never would have suspected in 35 fow I was at risk. Crab was the only thing on my mind

At least we got to hear from you, old buddy!

Glad you’re in one piece.   Good calls out there, and thx for sharing your experience with us. 

:smt001

Thanks Eric!

Rob, Good to hear you're none the worse for wear other than some heebee jeebies.  I was out there a couple times in the evening this summer, all alone, and I had that weird shark spider sense going on as well.  There's no doubts the landlord cruises that area when you consider the huge amount of food there with bait and salmon and pinnipeds.

Thanks Ben, sharktober/early November was not even on the radar, but there was so much bait around something perhaps should have clicked

Thank you for sharing, I thought I was the only one that carries a SharkTec!  I've always wondered if I can deploy it properly at the moment of need.  Thanks again for sharing, glad everything is all OK.

I know it won't stop a full breach-style attack, but if I ever wind up in the water I'd least I'd have something. Like my grandpa used to say "can it help, couldn't hurt!"

I'm excited to hear about the mackerel. Were they good sized, or just little ones?

The mackerel were cool to see, I'd say most were 10-12"

Really well written, my favorite parts were;

"Even after hearing people starting to pull limits on the radio the vision of that upper lobe of the tail popped back in my head and it was right back on the nope train to F-thatville!"


"Even under pressure, I thought it was irresponsible to leave anything (traps lines, trash, etc.) behind out there."

That's impressive!

Thanks for the clear description of the encounter.

Thanks! I didn't realize it was so long until it was posted!

Salmon, procure, and 25 lbs of rockfish dangled over the side: you'd have to assume there was something wrong with the shark if it didn't come see what was making all the nice smells.


Don't forget the hobie fins flapping around like a seal.  :smt001 Definitely glad to hear you are ok.   Stay safe

I know, I thought I ditched yum-yum Yellow for a more favorable color, but now I'm thinking olive with flappy fins perhaps not so good!

heard you on the radio as well while I was fishing out by the red can. i continued fishing but keep looking around for the landlord. i also noticed there were no seals hanging out on the green can. when i went to check my pots, i tried not to dangle my legs over for too long. glad it was just a drive by and you made it back safe!  i think i might have met you at the launch that morning (dune OB).

Yep, that was me next to you on the beach. Someone asked me if I saw seals around and I didn't see one all day, there usually are a few around stealing bait, maybe that should have been a sign
