Laurie Woodbridge, the normally taciturn black marlin skipper of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, was talking about sharks. Tiger sharks. He was topside, at the helm of his 40-foot sportfisher, Sea Baby II, dragging a pair of baits off ribbon reef No. 2, where on the previous evening, his fisherman, Steve Zuckerman, had caught a black marlin estimated at 1,050 to 1,100 pounds. "Sharkwise, we were lucky yesterday," he said.

After an hour's uneventful trolling aboard Sea Baby II off ribbon reef No. 4, skipper Laurie Woodbridge decided to break with the conventional trolling practice of dragging a scad far from the boat and a small tuna near the boat, on the surface. "Let's run a downrigger," he told deckhand David Beaudet.

For 2 1/2 tough hours, Thomas McCormack's new play "House," at the Falcon Theatre in Burbank, makes the world of Manhattan book publishing seem awfully dull indeed. The playwright ran St. Martin's Press for much of his career. Surely he witnessed all sorts of intrigue, pettiness and publishing-house back-stabbing during that time. Surprisingly little has made it into his script. It's a play about an old-economy universe, which is nice.

A fishing town since way back, Gloucester, Mass., is a place so connected to the water that the Virgin Mary atop the local Catholic church cradles not the infant Jesus but a baby boat. So what happens when depletion of the fish stock leaves companies like North Shore Fish with nothing to process but frozen bricks of the stuff shipped in from and then sent back to Japan?

Mortgage rates held steady this week, Freddie Mac's survey of lenders showed, with the 30-year fixed-rate loan at an average of 3.53% for the third week in a row - a great deal for those able to take advantage. The average rate for a 15-year fixed mortgage was 2.77%, the same as last week, the big mortgage finance company said Thursday . Freddie Mac, the giant government-supported buyer and guarantor of home loans, asks lenders each week for the terms they are offering to well-qualified borrowers.

Thousands of Southern California surfers have been victims for decades of often-vain treks up and down Pacific Coast Highway on the prowl for rideable waves. Perched on car fenders, they peer from coastal bluffs and parking lots across the sun-roasted sands for signs of a swell and the elusive pristine wave. But the hunt, glamorized in the Beach Boys tune "Surfin' Safari," is now over.

Written in the late 1960s and first produced in 1978, "Everybody Say 'Cheese!' " was rewritten in 2008 by its playwright, Garry Marshall. This retooled version, now at Marshall's own Falcon Theatre in Burbank, is intended as a sort of tribute to his mother, Marjorie, as Marshall makes clear in a charming program note.

Spray-painted names aren't the only monikers to be found lately on freeway walls. Residents, community groups and businesses are also adding their names--emblazoned on blue metal signs--as a reward for promising to keep a portion of wall free of graffiti. Through a state Department of Transportation program, volunteers are "adopting" freeway walls, agreeing to paint over for two years any graffiti that appear on the masonry barriers. So far, the response has been mixed.
