    Sometimes you have to pay the taxes when the men in grey suits turn up. Sounded like a good day out though Al.

    The big prob up here st moment is they are all over in huge numbers and big . The poor guides are getting smashed by them with their punters on board , I had one couple weeks back followed me for at least two k when trolling every time I stopped it would cruise around the boat . Would have been at least 8 ft

    Any reason in particular for the increase in shark numbers.
