    Sharks are in the ocean!!!

    When I first started offshore fishing with a couple mates they mentioned they dont swim in the saltwater at all for the same reason. I thought it was a bit unusual, but after seeing the size of the first shark that turned up and started stealing our fish within reach of our hands etc I only swim...

    hahaha yeah they scare all the fish off - and even if you manage to hook a fish they tend to steal it :D Get alot of sea turtles around here and its pointless fishing anywhere near them as well as the fish are all really spooked

    Sharks are in the ocean!!!

    If its proper freshwater and its a shark - its a bullshark :) (no other shark can regulate its kidneys/convert urea to prevent loss of salt water as good as a bully can - its unique in this regard - the others would just die in short order) Some other species can tolerate slightly brackish...

The mitsubishi bar is a stamped hayman reece manufactured bar (identical except a badge) but mitsubishi was wiping warrantys even if dealers themselves had fitted a hayman reece towbar before the buyer picked up the...
