Recent Shark Attacks
« on: July 03, 2015, 09:09:53 AM »
I've been seeing all the reports of the recent shark attacks in the news. Wed. morning I texted a buddy who is down on the OUter Banks of N.C. and jokingly said I heard the shark fishing was real good down there right now. He texted back and said only if you're using arms and legs for bait!  :o So  we texted back and forth a few more times that morning.

Then just after lunchtime I get a text that read: Shark Attack Nearby- NO SH**!!!!!!!!!!!   Turns out the latest victim was attacked on the beach they were staying at. They heard the siren go by the house and talked to a local that is on the fire dept. Confirmed their suspicians that is was a shark attack. They were planning to hit the beach in the afternoon after lunch, but decided to drive to another beach.  His wife refuses to go near the water now and he said he is only wading up  to his knees.

There is talk that the nearby fishermen are attracting the sharks. But of course they say they have been fishing there for years. But I guess some people just have to find something to blame it on.

Last night on the news they had a fisheries "expert" on that said this year just may be a perfect storm. Coastal drought that is making the water more salty, very warm ocean water temps and very plentiful baitfish. They said sharks love these conditions and it may explain why the sharks are coming into shallow water more frequently and the increased number of attacks.
