Fresh email from South Africa

Post by BarraBeast » Wed Aug 20, 2008 9:38 am

One of my friends and his mate in South Africa went fishing two weeks ago about 10 KM offshore from the South Coast of South Africa (very simular to QLD Gold Coast waters).
They caught a 3, 5 metre shark and eventually after a long fight got it to the side of the boat. While they were trying to gut the beast loose, a monster Great White came from nowhere and swallowed the whole 3, 5 metre shark with one bite.
They were so terrified that they abandon their fishing trip (probably to change their pants)
If you have a close look you can see the bite size from fin to fin. The Sharks Board can actually determine the weight and size of the monster by this bite size.
