    Florida Great White

    Another dinosaur tagged off Jacksonville......Be careful everybody. I know the odds are very low but seems like all these little ones that were protected for so long are coming back with numbers

    Very strange- the other shark they tagged (Mary Lee) spent some time right near Jacksonville also.
    She got so close to the beach that the researchers called the Jacksonville PD and they close the beach for the day. I believe she was near Bermuda last.

    Pre-Ocearch, local fishermen on occassion have seen great whites off the Jacksonville, FL coast. There are some 2-yr old videos off youtube of great whites filmed off Mayport. Supposedly they swim this far down the coast during the winter to follow and feed on the calving right-whales that migrate to this area of the Atlantic. They most likely chummed the heck out of that water.

    The funny thing is, if they did the same chumming at that same area during the summer months, you'll see a feeding frenzy of blacktips, bulls, etc.

    My husband flies a contraption low and slow just off Sebastian Inlet. He has spotted a great white shark several times only about 100 yards from shore. He said it's an impressive sight

    idk about a white, if thats 100% thats a species phenomenon maybe a mako. whites dont like that warm of water (I wouldnt think atleast) lots more fish near shore in florida though thats for sure. for the 18 yrs i lived down there i've seen my share of sharks, but never any whites or tigers for that matter. lots of bull and spinner sharks though

    Dude, I watched the video, and it's 100% White and 100% Hanna Park where they brought that baby in. I'm not stoked about it, I surf there every weekend.

    it's only a matter of time until someone gets attacked on the east coast. The population of white sharks has been increasing steadily for years. makes you wonder why they are still protected....once any species is on the list it's near impossible to get them off of it
