Hunting the Hunters

Setting out onto the ocean blue can have its moments.

Travelling a few kilometres into the  Indian Ocean can lead to interesting encounters.

On Sunday, Pat McCarthy and his two sons set out, in a 6 metre (18ft) boat for a quiet day wreaking havoc upon the piscine inhabitants of the  Ocean, with a camera on hand to record their wonderful achievements.

In what seemed to be a good spot, with two other boats nearby, the day’s fishing began. Suddenly the tables were turned.

A Great White in excess of 5 metres suddenly appeared and for around half an hour the hunters were hunted by the circling Jaws Junior.

  1. That’s over 16 feet!!! Big’un! And why do they call them “Great Whites” when they are very obviously grey???

  2. Buff, it is indeed a biggun. I’m so glad I never took up surfing! I think it is their tummy which is white.
