"we used to catch squid on calm nights using lanterns and a long pole with a net on it. Sometimes the squid were used as bait for some shark fishing. If you look at the shark in the first 2 photos you will see a bite mark on it, it was attacked by a much larger shark as we were pulling it it." Ken Wilson
