Port Hacking Sharks


Recommended Posts

Hey guys

talked to my mate this morning who came back from fishing in port hacking land based (cant say where he'll kill me) and he caught 3 sharks during the night. all of them around the 4-5 foot mark and were taken on baits intended for kings. recently a few weeks back he and i went there and he caught another four footer. has anyone else notice the increase of sharks lately or have they always been there. would they be scaring off the kings at all

cheers patrick
