Well, I finally had something to add here!
And that is...well, I saw one maybe two GWS's this year.

One out in 98ft off of the "birdsheet rock" reef North the Bean Hollow Launch, however I could not get a positive ID. All I saw was a dark shape about 30-40 yards off, part of a fin, and then boils on the surface from the animal swimming. Probably wasn't a sealion as it never came up for air. We had just begun to fish & I had no active FF or fish aboard.

The second sighting was more memorable. Approximately 12-14 foot GWS scoped me with two drive by's only 3-4ft below the surface, and then proceeded to track along behind my kayak (with it's dorsal fin clearly visible) for maybe 10 seconds or so (but it felt like an hour!). Aaron & Bassmanben were there, and the fish dropped away after we paddled in to about 30 feet of water in from about 50FOW. We didn't see it the rest of the day. Again, I had not yet retained any fish yet (though my companions had), and I was not using a FF.

It's been quite an ending to the N of PP rockfish season!
Both of these sightings/encounters were in October north of Pigeon point.

I think the encounter/attack numbers from BH possibly have something to do with the amount of effort put in there by many NCKAers (and that its a stones throw from Anyo Nuevo).........

Yes. Yes, it is.
However, during the late summer/early fall of 2009 GWS were also spotted off Davenport, the SC harbor, Capitola, and the Cement ship. There are probably more sightings down around Monterey/ Piedras Blancas that we've not heard of up here.

Mooch, Brendan C also saw one down in Big Sur a few years back when the fish hit a sea lion. maybe in 2006-2007?

Polygamist Al, Mark Fuller and I had a drive by at Lopez Point. The shark was quietly cruising by on the surface and very close.

You guys are Ballsy,
I'd really hate EVER having to see the landlord that close.
Was reading back thru some of the accounts ans the one that stuck in my head was the fin that was trailing behind the yak was as tall as the guy in the yak he ws following. Creeeeeeeepy.
Every single time that I wade in the IRL and Merritt Island I stay pretty aware of my surrounding because after all, there are tons of 10' plus gators ( it's an protected estuary) but the one thing that always stay in the fron of my mind is that there are alot of bull sharks in the 6-9' range and the errant hammerhead variant (scallopped, greater etc.) but, like all the other posts I have read, the idea of putting up my fish and making sure teh scuppers are plugged so I'm not "chumming" makes alot of sense. Thanks again for another helpful tip.

Feb 2010: Monterey Red Can.
Out kayaking with a buddy and saw a big grey fin stalking seals that were frantically hanging on for dear life onto the can. Shark circled thebcan then came headed for us in the yaks. Shark circles us about four times then glided under our yaks into the deep. About an 18ft shark.

Aug 2015: Santa Cruz mile marker. Harrassed by a curious little 6fter while halibut fishing.
