DP White Sighting 6-16-17



I was out of Dana Point Harbor kayak fishing for leopard sharks & halibuts friday, when a great white "pup" came up to bump the side of my kayak, i thumped him on the nose with the butt end of my fishing rod. i quickly started chasing him while video taping him. then facetimed my wife so she could see it live, she wasn't happy with me...

LONG BEACH (CBSLA.com) — The combination of hot weather, big crowds at the beach seeking relief from the heat, and the rash of recent shark sightings has lifeguards on alert this weekend.

With temperatures inland expected to hit triple digits this weekend, and not let up until next weekend, authorities are preparing for large influx of people at Southern California’s beaches – which have been closed on and off, up and down the coast because of shark sightings, swarms and attacks throughout the spring.

“We’ll keep an eye out, but we’ll probably stay kind of close to the shore,” a beachgoer from Sacramento said.

Making things worse are reports of people throwing shark food into the water to lure them closer to shore.

“We’ve gotten reports of possibly people chumming,” Long Beach Marine Safety Capt. Cameron Abel said. “From our standpoint, it’s a public safety concern. What we don’t want is sharks to become accustomed and conditioned to looking to humans for food.”

Chumming is not illegal, but lifeguards are cracking down on dumping of waste of any kind.

Thumbs down chumming

“We’ve gotten reports of possibly people chumming,” Long Beach Marine Safety Capt. Cameron Abel said. “From our standpoint, it’s a public safety concern. What we don’t want is sharks to become accustomed and conditioned to looking to humans for food.”

If this is true, which it probably is, what Idiots!

sounds like a bunch of people who don't enjoy the beach on a regular basis looking for a thrill. Possibly endangering those of us who regularly enjoy our local waters.

Putting a bait in the water at Dohenny is basically chumming right now. The sharks have been there for weeks and it has been on every network. Just like Sea Lions, if you know they are around then fish somewhere else. Rewarding either species for hanging around kayaks is not a good long term strategy.

There is no sure bet to avoid these animals. Sure, the Sharks seem to be more concentrated from Dana point south, but have been seen up to Long Beach. And as for sea lions, good luck avoiding them. Fish where you can and keep an eye out on your surroundings.

Off hand, there has been GW's along that beach for years, just not in the numbers you see today.

I'm pretty sure there are some wahoo's trying to hook them up too and attracting them with chum.

As close to the beach that they are I don't think chumming is a good idea.

No chum used to get the video. just using bait barge sardines on the bottom with my 20lbs halibut rig, i was in 11'-13' of water, my line had just snag the bottom and broke off, i was reeling in the line when i seen a grey shadow heading for the side of my 12' hobie outback . it's amazing to see a GWS, never had any issues with sea lions in this area.
I like ingridsdad idea, sounds like an E-Ticket Ride.

and yes my user name was fitting!!

Heard about "Fluffy" from all the SUP'ers at San O' since the famous Chuck Patterson GoPro footage back in 2013 or so. 6-7' juvenile lingering around Trail 1 just South if Dog Patch. Didnt think much of it. Fast forward to Thanksgiving 2014...trolling around San O' on a dead flat day with chrystal clear water in my 13' Ocean Kayak with my kid sitting on the bow. Line got bumped and clicker went off for a second then stopped. I turned around and watched 7'+ "Fluffy" turn broadside and slide away from the rear of my Yak. I shit myself. It kinda seems only a matter of time with these suckers.
Just read about an 18'er that buzzed a couple of guys about to spearfish a paddy 14 miles out (check 'Decks). All I can say is THEYRE GROWING!!

I am not saying not to fish Dana Pt. There are lots of good spots out of that place that are not right where the sharks are showing up basically every day. The Pipe, Headlands and Salt Creek are just a few. I would be willing to bet that your odds of a GWS eating your bait in any of those spots is at least 10 times lower. There are lots of tricks to reduce losing baits to Sea Lions, but the first rule is don't fish bait where they are hanging out.
