Sunday morning surprise

Having breakfast on the aft deck when one of our club boats bought in this Tiger Shark. He /she weighed in at about 460 Kilos(about 1,000lbs) caught off Northern Sydney beach's, on a reef out on the edge of the shelf.

With warm water still around at the moment,prior to winter, the sharks are about.The photo is not that great but you get the idea.

Should be able to get quite a few nice meals out of that one.
We rarely get the tigers down in Adelaide with the colder water, but still a few Great White's around. They are now protected in SA.

Looks as though they almost needed a bigger boat!

Would be nice if the thread title said something about the shark.

Pretty of sad to see, actually. We need more sharks, not fewer of them.
