Summer months are generally better, though they'll still be around just not in huge numbers

 Been getting heaps anchored up behind three mile if you've got a boat. Middle of the day, evening, night, doesn't matter. To me, the common theory that shark numbers thin out in cooler weather has been blown away.

 There's still plenty around & you wil find them off most beaches if you berley up hard. I don't buy the theory that there's less around in cooler months either, I reckon there's just less people targeting them.


 Just because I smile & nod does not mean I believe the crap coming out of your mouth.

All people have the right to stupidity but some abuse the privilege.

its all about the water temp and if there is food for them to feed on or smell to get them attracted.


Good things come to those who bait
