Some people make the mistake Grey Nurse sharks won't bite. They can be quite active very early in the morning.

Australian Spearfishing Champion ( December 1966) Peter Kemp met a large white pointer shark off the fisherman’s beach rocks at Seal Rocks.   Spearing alone off the beach in the 1960s, Peter met the big shark in relatively shallow water about four meters in depth.  There was no visual threat displayed – just a heart-thumping sudden jolt of adrenalin.  Today’s small video camera’s are capturing such moments nicely.  This example recently recorded off South Africa.
