    She is way too close for comfort. Definitely not te norm, but she's been chillen very close to shore for the past 3 months. I've been shocked watching how she's stayed so close for so long

    Mary Lee is likely a reincarnated surfer.

    Really what they are saying is they only tagged 2 great whites off the North Atlantic so it may be part of a normal winter migration for many more of theses large men in the grey suits.. how bout that.

    Exactly! This is only 2 of a bunch more... Good chance they're a few more big boys near by!!!

    For sure but there's a 250 yard or meter margin of error on those readings... I was just commenting on the article saying that Mary Lee was in the surf break. South Jax/ponte vedra a mile or so from the pier where the signal came from on a 2-3 ft swell makes a very short wave, literally shore pound or just yards out in fairly shallow water...Now if the past two weeks was some significant or storm swell where it breaks out towards the end of the 400+ yard pier with those deep sloughs between sections then I'd be worried about my feet and her being in the breakers...but that hasn't been the case...surfed there this morning by my lonesome...probably do it again tomorrow...maybe I'm wrong...in which case I'll most likely be the guy attacked...but I doubt THEY (car size Great Whites) get close enough in these small wave conditions on that stretch of beach...however there are spots that break out further around here...

    I plan to move to Jacksonville this year, but I may change my mind in the time it takes for me to find a place there. Nothing to do with the sharks either haha.
