I was in a pace boat for the first race at Sunny Isles. We pulled into the center of the course to watch the race. While we were sitting I happened to look down in about 15' of water to watch a 7' bull shark go crusing by.

That's a BIG Mako shark!!!

Last year in Ocean City after the race, we found a probably 5' shark cut in sections and stuffed in a trash barrel.....

Probably the same people that are responsible for "crop circles" and cow tipping

I went diving in Roatan Honduras last month. While on a wall dive at 120 feet a big a$$ hammer head popped up next to my wife and I. Not a good feeling!

It's kind of confusing about this advisory because Sharks are pretty common in our waters offshore in the canyon. They tend to stay in the canyon though, they like deep water and the food is there.

Possibly the schools of baitfish have moved closer to shore?

There was a whale off Pt. Pleasant Beach last week. http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/good_day_...shore-20100623
