Thread: The man in gray

  1. #11
    I believe it. Was out at the Frisco pier last summer and a *large* fin cruised by about 20 ft out from me. I wouldn't have seen it but a guy paddling out shouted at me and pointed. Not an awesome time to see the fin stead cruising through the water. Not like how a dolphin's fin arc's is way through. Paddled straight to shore probably faster than I've ever paddled.

    Thankfully the water is clear down there so the sharks have a better view of suspected prey. At least thats what I tell myself to ease the nerves...

    Last week a guy landed a shark right on the beach next to the Frisco pier in the 3-4 ft range , biggest shark I had seen caught while surf fishing. typically guys are catching sand sharks no bigger then a foot or two , I don't know enough about sharks to identify them , but it looked like a mako after I did some research .

    I've seen full grown 14' Hammerheads in 25' of water right off shore of WB, same with Tigers, Black Tips and Bulls (probably more in the 8' range), not to mention Manta Rays, large Barracuda and 60+ lb Cobia. I don't necessarily see all of the above every year, but with plenty of frequency. Anyone calling BS, especially around Frisco Pier, has absolutely no idea what they are talking about.

    Billawrongmoney: It was probably a Black Tip Mako. True Makos are pelagic fish, it would be very, very rare to see one within even 20 miles offshore of Hatteras Bight.

    Also, jumped in the water at lunch to spear around the jetty down here. Water was pretty murky, maybe only 5' of vis at best. I was searching in a rock hole when I felt a change in water pressure right behind me. Turned my head just in time to see a tail fin swimming away. I decided it would be best to just go in since I was by myself

    Don't doubt it in the least, I've been out at Frisco and seen some myself....they're all over the place down there. Glad you made it into shore.

    Just because you can't see them, does not mean they can't see you. It's their world.

    Thanks for sharing your encounter.

    You should have stayed out. What's one less poser in the lineup?
