You obviously haven't been to Australia have you...but I guess in Australia crocs are only one of the many things that go bump in the night..and day..gotta keep those tourists coming though..someone's gotta feed them crocs..and sharks, and funnel web spiders..and redback spiders and drop bears and the red belly black snake and .......................it's a long list

Shayne - if we were real smart we would never have gone camping, wondering, hiking, fishing, running, biking, driving or....... in the Australian Outback.

I for one long for the sound of magpies in the morning...sad, but I really do miss the outback.

I had a beer with the greatest fisherman on the island last week. Fyi, he blames the squid and herring boats for depleting the bait this year, thus driving the stripers away.

Ironically, my ex-girlfriend's name is Betsy.
Damn,when we were trading texts this afternoon about scallops I hadn't seen all this.
Great pictures btw, made me hungry. Take care tomorrow.

Very true the seals are increasing in population like crazy. I saw 3 harbor seals cruising around on a flat that was 3 ft deep the other week. I had never seem them in shallow water like that before. natural predators kept them in check a long long time ago (namely great whites) but who knows how many GWs were around back then? Certainly not as many humans in the water back then. They say the GWs are only homed in on seals, yet girls on kayaks get bit? Then if you read unbroken and hear the tales of downed pilots in the pacific in WWII...(given not GWs but still...)

Re: seals and local striper populations, Stripers certainly bug out when seals are around, but i have heard local studies have proved seals eat mostly ground fish. fisherman killing off too many big "keeper" female breeders is a sure way to make a serious dent in a population...

Never been, but have always wanted to go.

I grew up in Louisiana with alligators. Not quite as bad ass as your crocs.
Also have water moccasins and cottonmouths.

Nice. Sankaty is my favorite and I bet this is just rebranded Sankaty.

Nope. Not as good as Sankaty. Tastes flatter.

Shark Tracker is a very light , more so than Sankety. It is for peeps that don't really like beer. Whales Tail is very good,try it.
