Shark Reef - off the Chart!

Click for detail!
 
It's that time of the year again!

Today was just silly.
Lousy weather and big surge - and despite of it, the action was absolutely phenomenal, with likely more than 70 Fiji Bulls putting on an amazing display. This is a screen shot from the boat with its super wide angle lens - and there are easily as many Bulls further up, behind me and off to the right!
Try counting! :)

The one in the foreground is Whitenose.
He's the very first Shark I've named back then in 2003 - then a real rascal and now much bigger and finally also with a modicum of gravitas et dignitas!
This is he in 2003, by the great Doug Perrine.


Three more weeks, and then numbers will start to recede.
So...
