Our goal was to remove some hooks from the silkys on the deep ledge. So, we had some silkys come in and most had hooks. We targeted this particular one first due to its size. Randy had flipped the silky over, while I, Cameron Nimmo,  removed the hook. It was all filmed by Mickey Smith. We’re removed another hook the next day. We will try to remove as many as we can. We love sharks and will do everything we can to help them.
