pacific palisades: 50 meters from shore, 3 meter shark(estimate)
Will Rogers State Beach — On May 3, 2004, around 1230 hrs, lifeguards and swimmers reported as many as six sharks 20 to 50 meters from the shore at Will Rogers State Beach in Pacific Palisades. Video taken by the KNBC Channel 4 helicopter confirmed at least one of the sharks was a juvenile White Shark 4 to 5 feet in length. Lifeguards posted “Red Flags” indicating that swimming would be curtailed at the beach until later in the evening or the following morning. This is the same location where a number of juvenile White Sharks were observed just 10 days ago. These frequent observations of juvenile White Sharks along Southern California beaches will continue until late August or early September. The next Grunion spawn should occur May 6 – 9.
so...just look out . make shark fin soup, if necessary.
p.s. red tide+ large surf down here in laguna. went diving yesterday and saw a crew of 3 guys diving together all with Riffe Gear. Was it any of you? (Moss Street). Terrible vis so i got out. Saw a 24" calico right when I got in--wasn't ready for the shot. After that... nothing. I like being able to see past my speargun, especially when its a Riffe 2XS (shoulda brought a smaller gun yesterday) but still probably wouldn't be able to see what i'm shooting.
hopefully conditions get better-soon!
