Sharks and lots of them in the bay

Roger’s high-tech shark repellent system – scare the crap out of them.

IT'S been a bit of a mixed bag for the school holidays.

The groms have been lucky enough to score a few offshore days in the bay, but when the wind turned back to the north, it did so with a vengeance.

Of course, these radical wind changes are nothing new for spring.

It's just way it goes, especially when we're in the transitional phase from a La Nina into an El Nino.

But there have been waves, albeit small, and it seems week two could have some more.

Bit of a heads up for sharks, guys.

The crew spotted two white pointers, one at Wategos and the other at The Pass this last week.

A very reliable source also spotted a large tiger shark at Wategos.

There was also a bronze whaler cruising just metres off the bank at Clarkes Beach where unsuspecting families were swimming. Plus a small to mid-sized bull shark cruised in and chased a few groms at The Pass. Bottom line people: they are around in numbers at the moment, so be careful.
