Two West Maui bays were closed briefly over the weekend because of two 12-16 foot tiger sharks sighted.  The sightings forced the closure of Honolua and Mokuleia Bays between 10 a.m. and noon on Saturday morning.  Aquatics officials say the creatures appeared to have been feeding on fish in the area.  No injuries were reported.  Maui Aquatics Chief Mary Kielty reports both bays were reopened at 12 p.m. after being monitored for two hours by DLNR officials.
