Interesting talk with Billy Burns at the OB Pier in SD. He said as soon as the recent great white shark attack in Solano Beach his pier was mobbed with "shark fishermen" out to catch the brute. Of course the main catch has been leopards and shovelnose but I guess its been good for business. Reminds me of when "Jaws" came out many years ago. Everyone wanted to catch a big shark—including me. My "shark expedition" to the Farallones turned out to be one of the worst days of my life, as in extreme seasickness. I was so sick I would almost have welcomed a shark attack to put me out of my misery. It's one reason I primarily stick to piers today.
