Sorry folks! I had to remove the Mako thread by request of the photographer.

These threads often have so many complicated twists and turns, heck we even wandered out to Australia and touched on Darwinism, capitalism, rationalization of sharking, etc, etc, etc....

Out of complete respect for the photographer's wishes, the thread and image has been removed. We can remember the discussion it raised, the fear it creates, and the controversy that seems to loom in the shadow of the word "shark".

If you guys haven't seen this already I thought it was interesting reading. I met him I think at one of the sportsman shows a while back. He had a great white mount you could of walked into it jaws with no problem and stood in its stomach never forgot that. He has been name the real Quint from the movie Jaws. Also you will see he started the tagging of sharks back in the 60's, good reading.

Yes, it's all about him. Didn't he have a boat in Freeport, LI at one point?
