...more to chew on(no pun intended)

I wonder if there are any tautog under that bridge near by?

What kind of shark is that? Looks like he is a pretty good size!

well, there you have it... an apex predator right in your back yard. Look at the bright side- At least the day when these photos were taken that shark was somewhere other than where you were.

It's a great white. Like jaws
09-29-2004, 12:12 AM
That's what I was thinking...wow, that's unreal! Great pics man!

Thanks.. I really lucked out. This nice woman I see out surfing here in socal has family back in new england that took these photos. She knew I dove back in mass and ri so she sent them to me. I figured I would share.

Was that the same great white that was stuck and they were trying to get him out? I saw something on the news about that but I cant remember the area.
Very cool though and awfully nice of her. How about that! :)

I actually heard they taged it, and let it be cause the thing was healthy. I was reading that the tracking tag will eventually pop of the shark, and float to the surface-when it does it will send all the information at once via radiowaves. Thw whole history of the sharks movement will be recorded. When that happens it would be killer to see the data! ...Or maybe not!(lol):eek:

That does sound like it could generate some great data. I guess it's not everyday you get to tag a great white, so this is a great opportunity! Nice! :)

Wow. I do a fair amount of shore diving, spearfishing and kayaking. in Falmouth and Buzzards Bay. That is is one big shark!

The Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries has created a webpage for information about the shark. Nice page with update reports, pictures, and high resolution video. Due to the crowds expected this weekend, they have restricted access to the area.
Check it out:

gills.... If I put a spear in that thing during the meet will you help me paddle it back to the weigh-in?
Euro gun all the way!

Sure - as long as you stone it! Uhh - you got 1,700 lb mono shooting line? Think about this...the shark is the same length as a Scupper Pro. Of course its about 1,670 lbs heavier...
I just want to make sure that it stays put until Monday. Sakonnet's within a days swim for something that size! :eek:
Supposed to be a press conference today at 4pm...stay tuned

Hmmmmm.... I wonder if a tower like that would fit on my kayak.
Sober and at college :(
09-30-2004, 04:14 PM
I think the tower is a great idea...as long as you bring the M1 rifle also!
Check out this video from MADMF: http://mass.gov/dfwele/dmf/marinefisheriesnotices/whiteshark/ws_vid3_lo.mpg :eek:

How freaking weird is that....... I actually shiverred while watching that.
Your just trying to psyche me out, I get it.
Diver of shark free waters,
09-30-2004, 05:03 PM
You wouldn't even see it coming...
Go home sharky! Bad shark! SIT!
When that shark gets out of that salt pond, it is going to be very hungry,pissed off, and tired of seeing humans!

Looks like she'll be free for the weekend! :eek:
10-02-2004, 12:42 PM
Looks like she doesn't want to leave just yet. Fine with me.
