Conditions improved enough to do an easy dive on Manta Arch at South Solitary Island today. Whilst Manta itself was bare of Grey Nurse, we found 10 or more hiding elsewhere.
Dive 2 turned out to be a rapid drift with a good current, with at least the same amount of Grey Nurse at Shark Gutters at the start and heaps of fish and a couple of turtles along Boulder wall.
The Picture today shows a Grey Nurse on Dive 1 with fishing line covered in algae hanging from it’s gill. This means an embedded hook inside its mouth. With the algae on the line indicating that it has been there a long time, it is obvious to us it would have a stainless steel hook. We feel they should ban them, the shark will die slowly from it’s presence, before it looks like rusting away.
Visibility 10-15 mtrs  Water temp 21- 23c
