Yesterday's talk. Great whites are lurking around our pier. Yes, they've always been there. And no they're not going anywhere.
There's been rumors about people specifically trying to fish for them off the pier. This is very dangerous to beach goers, swimmers and surfers that use this area regularly...not to mention the junior lifeguards! Fishing for these protected animals is illegal and dangerous as they are essentially baiting them in closer to shore and raising the potential for human interaction.
Please help stop this situation by keeping an eye out for people using heavy leaders that are specifically meant for large "fish" and for big fish being used as bait. If you see any suspicious activity please report this to https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/enforcement/caltip (link in bio). Photo @sarboone
