    What is that, about six feet?

    I don't think he feels good. 6 ft he is still a juvenile.

    Great shots @raybo3! Too close for comfort. Looks like it still wants to eat!    We had a few great whites around our shores this year. They had tracking beacons on them so you could check online where they were last seen.

    Its a deep water shark. Look at its eyes

    The thing about a shark, it's got lifelesseyes, black eyes, like a doll's eyes. When it comes at you it doesn't seem to be livin'... until he bites you, and those black eyes roll over white.

    It was 6 feet 6 inches long. It's a porbeagle shark. Not sure how it got to the club. Maybe it wanted a drink....lol

    Never heard of that type of shark, interesting. Almost looks like a baby great white.

    I would never go in the water again...ever.  Unsalted and shark free = priceless.

    One of the Admiral and my favourite pastimes when visiting Florida, Cuba etc. is surf fishing. Wade out about waist to chest deep and cast a line and stand out in the waves.....with a bag of bait...
    We kinda joke that if we're going to fish we should give them a fair shot at us too. I will admit though that we try and do it on clear days when we can see what's around, and more importantly a passing shark can tell we're not their favourite food. I worry more about inadvertently stepping on a sting ray, so we do the "stingray shuffle" when walking out and back.
    Odds are better of getting hit by lightening out on the boat than being attacked by a shark.

    @Willhound......as a very, very experienced scuba diver, who has been around great whites, tigers, reefs and the one I shark I fear, bull sharks, - there is no amount of money you could pay me to have a bait bag near me while fishing in waist deep water. The only shark attacks I have been familiar with involving attacks on humans have been associated with  bait fishing, spear fishing and scuba divers feeding sharks. We spend 4-5 months in warm waters and the minute we see a guy on the beach set-up a chair and rod to fish from shore I am out of the water in a flash. You have waay more "guts" than I do.

    Not sure about guts....less brains maybe.....bait is usually a couple of frozen shrimp or some live shrimp secured in a small bucket. And I have great life insurance on the Admiral......
    wouldn't dream of taking cut white bait or anything.
