  1. I actually knew a guy that was bitten by a shark off Tomales Point here in California. He lived too.

    1. Yep, there are actually lots of them off the coast, as they eat the sea lions.

      Scroll down till you get to the story on Colum Tinley.

    2. Thanks. I never saw any unless I was a mile or further out on my boat. We would catch Bonita, freeze their guts in coffee cans, poke holes in the top, then trail them out the back on ropes while we made large circles. Caught one once, but lost him in the end. When Scuba and free diving saw leopards and some others only. Leopards are great eating.
