This is someone else's story, but I just got a call with the report that one of us was knocked out of his yak by  a GWS today at Bean Hollow......Report said no injuries to our fellow yak angler.

Don't know any details because the cell connection ws marginal.  Keep your eyes open for later posts.  Anyone with accurate info, please post asap.

Thanks

I was there, Dan was knocked out of his kayak by a great white in full attack mode. When he climbed back in the shark was still gnawing on his kayak.  He is okay, his kayak limped in, he was taking water on but it held together.  I did not see the attack, only him coming in real fast.  I helped him try to settle his nerves on the water and we paddled/peddled in together.  Some of the Kayakers actually saw the splash after the shark attacked.

Thanks John.  We may need to buy a wetsuit rinse at Bean Hollow.  I am so grateful Dan is unhurt.  Hopefully we will hear from him the 1st hand story today.

Dan, I'm glad you're okay.  Sorry about your yak.  Heck of a story to go with those major battle scars.  We knew it was going to happen someday, but I didn't think it was going to happen so soon to someone we know.

Hi Yakers:
             Dan has big Cahones! I hope my Family doesn't hear about the LandLords visit. Anyone have plans for a "Bang" stick?

Holy Moley!  That's the real deal right there.  Glad everyone is OK.  Dan... I'm really looking forward to the first hand account.  Really glad it didn't turn ugly. 

Hopefully your kayak is salvageable... NOBODY has battle scars like that.

Scary stuff! :smt009 Battle scars make a good story, but this one is extreme. I'm glad you're in one piece, Dan.
