    shark attack

    We had a shark attack here in Lauderdale Memorial day. The guy was wading in three-foot deep water when a small spinner shark bit him on the arm. He punched it a few times and it let go. He ended up with sixteen stitches.
    This is why we had our latest shark attack. As you will see in the pics I have attached…people do dumb things.

    The dark spot just offshore is a school of anchovy size baitfish. We call them pilchards. They come in close to shore this time of year to escape the critters that eat them.


    Two very large, about two-hundred yards long, schools on the outside of the sand bar and a smaller school on the inside. Note the two complete dummies wading around in the middle of them. It is especially interesting when people wiggle their fingers in the water with lots of shiny jewelry on them. A silver sequined bathing suit works well also.


    The big black spot is why it is not a great idea to swim with the bait fish...a large hungry critter cruising just offshore looking for something to eat.
    Personally, I really like our large heated pool.

    Come on down...the waters fine.

    I gotta say I'm guilty of swimming after schools of baitfish on the beach.

    Must of been pretty scary to get attacked. Reminds me of a story that was in the news paper a while back in the keys.

    Some guy was spear fishing and had just speared a big one. As he was swimming to the surface, he felt a strong tug on one of his flippers. He looked back and there was a big hammer head latched on to his flipper. I can't remember how the rest of it went but I think he ditched the fish he had speared and the hammer head let him go and went after his catch.

    I hope this doesn't give sharks another bad image because that was absolutely those two peoples fault.

    Hey Rattler,
    Don't worry about the sharks here. They are all pretty small close to shore...well most are small.
    If you are going to be in the area, give me a call. PM me and I will give you my phone number. We could have a couple of cold ones and swap some lies.
