PL14 White Pointers in Moreton Bay

Jack Little: “White Pointers were first attracted into Moreton Bay after the opening of the whaling station at Tangalooma on Moreton Island in 1951. They would follow the whale chasers back into the bay, feeding off their haul of whale carcasses. With the influx of White Pointers into the bay, the sport of Big Game fishing was introduced by Norman Gow. Radio personality Bob Dyer was one of the best known and most successful fishermen in this class.”
(Editor: As a schoolboy, I remember seeing one of Bob’s sharks displayed on a trailer at the first ‘Churchie’ Fair on 13 October 1951. It smelt strongly of formaldehyde preservative.)
