One day, North of Midway caught shark, extracted teeth with volunteer help from several novice dental techs.

  

Another day (Sunday) Evening Chow, lost big shark and busted up my tackle when an officer came up from the Ward Room and fired a few rounds at it with an automatic rifle. An angry 14' shark could tear up a lot of gear and people on deck. A broken fish pole turned out to be a good lesson!
