Whales last few weeks and today

Obvious today guy cutting a whale free from ocean reef where pro pots ( they use lead lines or leads) to weigh lines down . Guy other day cutting whale free from net . Was facing fine , but was dropped. Load of c@-p. Point being lead lines on pots doesn’t work . So we loose pots for no reason . Is guy going today going to get charged for tampering with pots. Wouldn’t surprise me at all.

Just back from Peaceful Bay and they were pretty active down there but so far not many at all around Margs.


Coincides with a late run south for them last Spring.
