Makos, Makos, Makos...

Anybody from South of the Cape, Islands, or Rhode Island plan on sharking this weekend or next weekend? If so would you mind taking along two Biologists from the University of Rhode Island?

We are trying to put pop-up satellite transmitters on Mako sharks, we have two left and would LOVE to get them all out this year. These will track their movements and depth/temperature preferences over about a three month period.

So if you are going out (or were thinking of going out!) and would like to help out with this, much appreciated!!!.......oh and we have about $200 from the school we can throw towards bait/gas etc. We don't take up much room and we are both pretty expierenced sharkers so it's not like we would just be dead wood on the boat, if it comes down to it I even have all the terminal gear needed (wire, hooks etc). And you get to say you got your hands dirty on real life shark research, c'mon how cool is that?

Let me know if interested. After this weekend we would be willing to travel down to Long Island to go out on a Saturday or Sunday.

cheers

Mako

We are going out sometime next week... might have to wait on the weather a bit. It sounds like we might have some room.

We are running a 254 Mako cc with twin 150s out of new london, ct.
I'm not sure about the float plan yet. Sharks ledge to the Gully might be a good bet. Picked up a small mako (150 lb) 3 weeks ago in this area...Released!

We are not old hands at this but would like to help out if we can.

Per chance do you (or anybody else out there in internet land for that matter) think you might be making any more shark trips, that you would be willing to take one or both of us out on?

Only one more transmitter to go!!!!


We need this to happen one more time (see picture)

BTW, much thanks to Josko for the efforts and hooking it up so we were able to get that 4th transmitter out!
