    You guys were lucky....the bull sharks are the most unpredictable of all. We were in the water at the same time 30 miles north.

As she tried to flee she stumbled and fell in the shallow water.....she was torn apart by small blacktip sharks.....she bled to death and had multiple bites on her body......i was told this story by natives on Andros Island when I was in my teens....i believe this happened in the late 50s....when my family had just moved to the bahamas.

    I have never had a shark seem to be interested in me at all. Thirty years ago, I was black-water diving in Cooper River, inland from Charleston, when something slammed into my leg. I had a severe bruise there & you can still see the ruptured blood vessels in my leg from it.

    i lead people on alot of spearfishing charters....it can happen fast and at any moment. You can see how a good day in the water can go south quick. I usually hover at guard distance while others fish and hunt.....if there is a shark problem its my job to protect and get everyone back on board in one piece. Its no fun to have to go directly at the shark and draw its attention away from guests.....repeated jabs with the spear can usually drive them off....most of the time.....if it really wants you its hard to prevent. This video is from a couple years ago.....this is not me but shows the dangers of spear fishing....if you spear fish long enough you will have a shark encounter !!

    I would bet money it was a Bull.
    Spook a bull and you will get slammed... even if on its way out... there is a reason it got the name "bull".

    And whilst on the subject of ... "shark names and why",,, heh
    Tiger sharks also fit their name... very appropriately.

    I've moved over to the east coast of FL now, and to be honest I'm a little nervous about water detecting on this side.

    I don't see many water hunters in this area. Is it because of sharks, or just the waves?
    Depends on your east coast location. There's a lot of leased areas for treasure, get caught detecting in the water in the Sebastian-Vero Beach area and you could detecting some big problems.

    Reminds me of the time one of my diving buddies wanted me to go with him spear fishing at night in the Indian river around the bridge. He was doing good on snapper that night and the dummy was towing a stringer full behind him. He told me that something was tugging on his stringer and it got so aggressive he just knew it wasn't the speared fish. When he turned to check on it, he realized it was a huge hammerhead. He told me he gave the stringer away...
