Just hope the authorities don't 'go overboard' and kill every shark that visits the coastline.

His speargun and weights were found by police divers about where his mates said they last saw him being attacked in the spearfishing comp.

Let's be honest, spear fishing in shark waters is inviting trouble, especially when great whites had been seen in the area, if you take that kind of risk you have to be prepared to live with the consequences. 


I fish, I catches a few, I lose a few, BUT I enjoys. Anglers Trust PM
