Happy Thanksgiving Day!
On Thursday the 25th of November, we celebrated Thanksgiving Day in 'true' style... No stuffed turkey, but after a delicious meal with Ostrich (a much larger bird than turkey after all) kebab, roasted chicken, braaied boerewors, and a variety of vegetables, we were so full we barely managed to eat Trey's amazing pumpkin pie!
After several days of rough seas, we managed to launch Lamnidae again on Friday the 26th of November... And what a wonderful day at sea! Glass flat sea in the morning, and the wind only picked up after lunch... We observed 13 different White Sharks, and two more near the beach along our Haaibaai shore transect. Great day!
On Saturday the 27th of November 2004, overcast sky made it difficult to see the Sharks with the surface glare, but we observed 14 different White Sharks today... Some of the Sharks were very active, coming to the surface with speed... Other Sharks always poked their heads out of the water when approaching the bait... Exciting day!
Our first Shark got the bait from Barracuda, and swam away... and suddenly the Shark breached clear out of the water... That was really amazing!
The Terminator is back!
