A lifelong Makena kayak fisherman says an experienced local might have noticed warning signs that shark victim Patrick A. Briney missed.
When he was fatally bit by a shark this week, Patrick A. Briney was dangling one or both feet in the water as he kayak fished. It’s common.
Shark attack victim Patrick A. Briney’s brother Bill is painting a picture of an avid angler and free spirit who loved the water.
Most kayak anglers ease into the sport. They dip a toe in to test the water. But if Jeffrey Pierce, Capt. Kevin Beach, or his deckie Jordan Ellis had dangled any digits in the shark-infested ocean of the trio’s debut kayak outing in 2012, they might have come back a foot or two shorter.
