Captain’s Noon Reports – Belle Amie – 2021-08-05

Location: Guadalupe Island

Weather: SE Wind (1-2kts) and Clear Sky

Yesterday afternoon our action slowed down somewhat, with the large males who were hitting our bait in the morning taking a break and leaving us to a couple of juveniles who spent the whole afternoon trying to work up the courage to come close enough to get the bait. The juveniles never came within 30ft or so of the cages, but guests were still able to see them off in the distance. Even though the action was slower than before, the guests loved every second of it. This morning started very slowly, with no sightings until about 8:45am. Since then, we have had constant activity at the bait. The two adult male sharks from the past two days are at it again. Submersible cages are getting close passes and we have even sighted an adult female shark lurking in the depths below the cages. She is noticeably bigger than everything we have seen so far. So, despite the slow beginning the day is a huge success so far. 

Visibility: 130-150ft

Water Temperature: 69°F
