    They aren't going to harm yah in the bay lol. If your bleeding bad offshore when they are feeding that could be a different story though. I've only seen sharks a few times offshore that are just swimming around, and that great white once..

    Gonna head out to Silverstrand tomorrow to catch perch and throw a rod for leopards/rays. Going to use a 3 way rig with a half of a fresh mackerel. Hopefully I will catch something. Will let you guys know how I do.

    I'm pretty sure you can only take them by hand.

    Caught a sculpin once it coughed up a small octopus put it on a hook and could not keep the fish off and it was so tough the fish couldn't pull it off
