    I will be monitoring conditions (willing to make the personal sacrifice) and occasionally 'test' the waters with my detector.

    I will let you all know when it is safe for you to go back in.

    But for now, to be safe, stay up on the dry sand please.

    Stay out of the water with your detector and stay alive!

    I used to work with a guy that was in the Marines in San Diego (as I recall), and they would occasionally hunt them from helicopters. I'd guess from his age it was in the 60s.

    LOL - good luck with that.

    You have more chance of getting killed in a car accident driving to the beach than getting bit by a shark.

    Florida Sharks

    Or struck by lightning from an afternoon thunderstorm. Although you have to admit there seems to be a lot more shark attacks lately. Or is it because of better communications/ social media and we just are hearing about more of these now.

    There are about 100 million shark attacks, each year — roughly 11,00 attacks per hour.Theese
    numbers may be on the low side, since this this number is based on the number recorded.
    If you dine at a large sea food restaurant, you may see 50 to 100 man, woman, and even children eating sharks while you are dining. If I was a shark, I would be terrified. That’s not even including the thousand of my buddies who have been waisted dangling on long lines or trapped in nets.

    Of the more than 450 different types of sharks only a few are harmful to man, such as the bull shark, tiger shark, hammer head shark, you fill in the blank, close to shore in Florida waters. In my opinion, the bull shark is the most dangerous as it can live in brackish waters including fresh water rivers. If you look at the teeth of a tiger shark you can see that they are chiseled, for breaking shells of turtles. A word to the wise — don’t go out past the furthest out sand bar and avoid looking like a turtle which bogy do, especially when wearing short flippers on hand or feet to catch the waves. A hammer head shark has pointed cat like teeth, all the better for holding, so if a victim is attached, you can haul both the victim and shark back to shore.

    I did not include the Great White shark, as it is heavily tracked and reported.
    Most victims are released after an exploratory mistaken bite, so survival rate is surprisingly high.
    You can tell from it’s triangular teeth that it mostly feeds on pinapods (seals).
    Nor did I include the Mako, which is morely to hit a shiny propeller on a boat.
    You will find this shark where the tuna roam. Speak of irony both of these apex predators
    are on the threathened list.

    Also, please do not bother the sharks, even a nurse shark — which does not have teeth, can gum you to
    Death if you annoy it. The same is for dolphins, which may ram you with their head if you annoy them
    Or confuse their sonar.

    When you use the ocean for recreation, you have to realize that you are entering a shark’s world.
    Knowledge and a little respect will go a long way in keeping you out of trouble.
    While those pictures are sensational, they forgot to identify the type of shark photographed.
    Looks like small grey sharks or spinner shark to me.

    Personally, I am more scared of walking barefoot on the beach (broken bottles, sharp can lids, fish hooks, nasty staff infections — if you get cut). Then you have to worry about the sun turning you into a crispy critter or burning the bottom of your feet when the sand heats up.

    Take care and have a great day, don’t forget to buckle up on your drive to and from the beach which is the greatest danger, or getting run over if you walk to the beach in Hawaii

    Jaws, the unabridged version.

    It's actually a recipe book for eating humans.

    They have charts, people tables (similar to tide tables but for people in the surf) and a leg identification guide.

    They are publishing a new book next year that has a lot of tips for sneaking up on the tender nuggets, (kids) and how to avoid the people with a high fat content.

    I don't want to tell anybody where, but we have been training a Cougar to ride a Tiger Shark. (new tourist attraction)

    6 shark attacks in NC the past 2 weeks. 2 in OBX. I believe it happens a lot more then we are led to believe. No city/state officials are willing to admit the true numbers, especially recently. Too much money is at stake. We laugh but it's basically the beginning premise to the movie Jaws all over again.

    Of course they are, but that's it. It doesn't go any farther than local. I'm just saying that the data base numbers in which "we" base our opinions on are a "bite" off

    If they are reported only locally you could still find them on internet search even if only locally reported....
