Monster Great White shark caught – pics!

Filed Under (animals, environment) by Jan Hennop on 30-10-2009 and tagged animals, environment, great white shark

shark2Photographs of a huge Great White Shark being dissected at the Point in Mossel Bay caused a stir around the country this week, with people sending the pictures around by e-mail, reports News24.com.

“The shark of about 4.3m, which was dissected on Friday in Mossel Bay, landed in nets of the Natal Sharks Board at the Zinkwasi beach in KwaZulu-Natal,” said Dawie Zwiegelaar of the National Sea Rescue Institute’s Mossel Bay office on Wednesday.

According to Geremy Cliff, head of the Natal Sharks Board, the female shark was weakshark1 but alive, when it was found. It was also marked.

“Staff from the Sharks Board tried in vain to free her, but she was clearly confused and was found dead in the nets early the next morning,” he told News24.com.

Cliff said the shark was dragged to the beach and taken to their head office in Umhlanga to be cut open as part of their research into feeding and reproduction.

At the request of British documentary film production company Windfall Films, it was decided to keep the shark until the film crew could film the dissection in Mossel Bay.

According to Dr Ryan Johnson, head of Ocean Research in Mossel Bay, Windfall Films wanted to film in the area due to the natural beauty. Windfall Films was busy with the second series in their popular programme Inside Nature’s Giants.

The shark was dissected on Friday at the Point by staff from the Sharks Board.

The photographs that created such a buzz were taken at the time.

“It isn’t one of our sharks, we don’t have such small sharks,” joked Zwiegelaar on Wednesday.

documentary entitled “Sharkville”, which shows that the bay has a unique resident shark population, living in close proximity to bathers.

Researcher Ryan Johnson also made the remarkable discovery that the Great Whites hunted by breaching – at night!

My Snoopy Zebco may not be big enough.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

Just use a Zebco 33.  SD State record Walleye was caught from shore using one. 

Lets see: $50k boat - check, $45k pickup - check, $2k in rods and reels - check, $1500 in tackle - check.  Catching nothing but slot fish and having some 60 year old grandma use a $20 rod/reel combo to catch state record from the dock - sucks.

No, I am not the one with the boat, pickup or fancy tackle.

We NEED a bigger boat.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

14.5ft Great White is not all that rare....  but I wouldn't want to see it swimming at me in the water.  LOL
