    This pic was taken after this juvenile White was released unharmed this past October off of Malibu in the Paradise Cove area. The interesting part is that the orange thing you see in the bottom of the photograph is my buddy's KAYAK. My bud took the photo, and fortunately it was while he was sitting upright in the kayak. He estimated the fish in the 250-300lb ballpark. He was fishing the threshers with macks for bait, and incidentally and unexpectedly had this little pig show up. I've told him that eventually a White or a large Mako would show up when he fished this way, as I've caught more than a few large Makos immediately offshore of this area and have had a White come up in my slick. I was on a nice big boat though. :D Fortunately for him, it was a small White that showed up, and it was only interested in his bag of mackerel. It certainly is a great picture, but it is a reality check for those that go offshore in little boats.

    I am certain none of the small boat folks want to see or read this one. But it is a real pic, taken at a popular location for the yakkers, and it really happened. It's a good thing it was not a huge Mako or adult White.

    I'll stick to the big boats, and I wish he would too. He has no excuse,as he has a big boat, and he can always fish on mine also. I can't get the yakker out of him.

    Yes, he caught and released it. Actually, I think he hooked it and it just came up to the boat (followed the boat). I agree, the yakkers are nuts. Tie a flying gaff hook to the bottom of those yaks and market them as Great White surface plugs.

    If memory serves me right, didn't a couple of kayaker's, UCLA students I believe, get eaten by a huge great white off of Malibu years back. When I say years back, I mean like 10-15 +/- years ago or something like that?

    I remember reading about finding pieces of the kayak with huge shark bites taken out of them.

    The last couple of white pups that went to the Monterey Aquarium came from the Malibu area. The moms are roaming around. There have been several sightings of bigger ones.

    Am I the only one who doesn't see a kayak in that picture? And this is after releasing the shark and it is just hanging around for the photo? I'm not calling BS, just a little skeptical.
