    IMG_3270.PNG IMG_3271.PNG IMG_3272.PNG Headed out the the 14 mile out of DP. Ran late and got on the water around 8. Paddys were few and far between with little life. Couldn't seem to find any YT. At what became our last stop this big SOB bulled right to the boat as we were getting in. We were in a 16 whaler and he was easily bigger than the boat. We figure he was pushing 18'. That will definitely be on my mind on future dives.

    Nice GW. Seen them but could never get a picture of one. That is a good sized one.

    Don't forget he was little once. Glad you all are safe. Kinda makes your 16 whaler seem real small. Thank goodness you got out of the water when you did. I don't think the spear guns would have slowed him down much, nice as they are. Personally, I don't like man killer sharks. Good eatin though.

    You might use a "dummy" for a dive partner.

    I used to dangle my feet over the gunnels..not any more!. I'm glad you didn't have to find out exactly what that guy wanted. Sniffing or eating?
