    Yeah, no sharks for me either... and if anyone thinks they are some sort of manly, macho whatever because they say they're not afraid of sharks, your not. The fact is we are in their habitat, so they have TOTAL advantage over us. And if they want they will rip any one of us apart.

    Yeeeah. Sharks are no fun.
    But neither are 20 people trying to surf the same wave.

    It's funny how things change, when I was a kid I loved the summer, now, I get butterflys just thinking about freezing tubes and howling winds.

    Sharks in Jersey

    I am a fisherman and just getting back into surfing after 12 years. I have fished the bunker schools off Sandyhook to Brigantine and have seen plenty of threshers 50 yards from the beach where everyone is swimming. BIG ones too. If they only knew. Browns are in the surf a lot in July/August. My freind was fishing off Manasquan last week and had a 6' Hammerhead in their slick. ONE mile out. They would scare me but not as bad as as a Mako or school of Gorilla Bluefish. I havnt heard about a Bull Shark around but who knows. Usually that stuff is all over the fishing boards.

    I got a LOG!!!!!! Walden 10'6". Im a big guy. That would have to be a hell of a shark to hit me...LOL. I spearfish too. Im not sure if I like knowing whats out there and down deep. When I started surfing about 15 years ago...I didnt quite know so much about the life near the beaches...LOL. I liked it that way.

    With all this talk of sharks unseen. . .

    I just have to say one thing, thank God I'm not a sponger! Two less pieces of bait dangling and kicking in the water. Ay tiburon algun aqui!

    "we're gonna need a bigger boat"

    when you look at the beach on a crowded weekend, and there is not one incident involving a shark (plenty of screaming unattended kids, fat inlanders drowning in 2ft of water, headers and dislocated shoulders, etc) you must realize what an amazing and intelligent animal a shark is. they're out there, and if they wanted us, we'd be easy pick'ens. any good shark stories anyone? if not, i'll start a new thread later on, as i have a few...

    from what I've heard, sharks really don't like human flesh. More than anything, shark attacks occur because we are in their way.

    More like mistaken identity. Dirty, rough water, Dawn and dusk, during and after a NEaster...bait in close....all times when sharks are feeding heavier than normal and the times we have seen them close to the beaches. A kicking swimmer can easily be mistaken for a pod of fish fleeing or injured. If the shark is big enoough...mistaken for a SEAL? OUCH!
