When a mola shows up the place goes nuts. We sit and laugh as they scramble out of the water. It's a mola my nephew said and a dude was like yea stay out of the water those sharks are big. It's a mola. Mola sharks. Lol.

I wonder if the orcas will show up this year? That is a weird affect to great white sightings and tells a story of who’s king of the ocean?

Hooker.   Why do you want to shake the tree ? You know the nuts are going to fall out . You had a good day the price is not bad , me too for a month now, snag and drop.  But most guys keep it quiet .ya I’m a killer have been for 50 years . Good times and bad  then now  a smart fisherman will keep it to himself  . Or do you like bumper boats.    No one wins the recreational versus the commercial war . also stay on the subject of discussion.  Please  ura nature born killer me too

Dave,

 

Just because people are concerned about the plight of our precious bass, that doesn't make them nuts. 

Responsible c&r is fine. Killing these few remaining fish for what amounts to beer money and bragging rights isn't. :read:

we were out on Monomoy fishing last weekend.  
My buddy has an app on his phone that alerts of shark sightings in the area.

We got four different notifications just in the few hours we were on the water.

I looked into booking a GW trip for my wife and I, since I've never seen one.  But it's tough to justify upwards of $2k.   Eventually I'll see one eat Salty on Bell Rd.

From what I'm told the $$$ cost  is so high because they hire spotter planes to find the sharks for them.   I would like to have brought my kids on one as well.    I prefer to go fishing and "hope" we see one.

Seems more fun to me this way.  

Tour reminds me of a caged hunt.  

 

I'd rather chase free squirrels than sit by a deer feeder.

This happened before, early 80s, when the fishing was completely in the crapper 

A huge school of large fish was discovered in deep water around Billingsgate.  As you described, idiot fishing of the highest order. Drop a live eel on a 3oz sinker, and hang on. It went on day and night. 

There were no 15 fish limits back then, nor closed days. As long as they were over 36", you were good to go. Guys were going out with 5 dozen fish, and coming in with 500-600lbs of large. Day after day.   Everyone more or less knew these fish were the last of the Mohicans. But, it was legal, so no one cared.

History is now repeating itself with the pogy fishing in ccb.  We never learn.:banghd:

And if you tried to restrict this, the chorus of screams would be deafening. You're stealing my livelihood! I live for this! Socialist commie ecowarrior!

The shark-tour operators ought to get together and share the reports from one plane. And soon enough they'll be able to uses a UAV to find the sharks at a fraction of the price of a piloted plane.

 

If a plane is broadcasting sightings, private boaters will run to see, and cheat the tour operators of the chance they're looking for. But surely there are encrypted radio systems available?
