So my 3 buddies and I were in about hip deep water, shooting the breeze and about to paddle out, the water was gentle and real clear that day , and a shark about 5 foot, swam by us 4-6 feet away from us. So we got out, stood on shore about ten minutes, got tired of waiting, went back in and had great 2 hour session and no more sightings.

So I was wondering, do you bother getting out? I know sharks are always there whether you see them or not, so is it pointless to get out if one comes up so close?
