    Nobody worry, I went to Cape and caught the culprit!

    In all seriousness, I did fishing a couple miles North of Cape on Sat and caught about 17 sharks in about 2 hours. They were just small sand sharks, but thats a pretty good number in that amount of time. Stocks are good

    I read a few years ago in a local DE online article that the MD/DE border area has the highest concentration of "different" shark species on the entire east coast. It also said that with that being said, it is an anomaly that there is such little human / shark interaction up there.

    And even in panic, most people can tell the difference between a shark and a rock fish. They look nothing alike.

    Witnesses down here two weeks ago all said that the lady got big by a shark. 4-5 feet in length cause she lifted it out of the water. Thats where is gets grey, because people assumed it was a bull, some said it was s sand tiger.... In a flash, it's probably hard to identity what kind of shark it was, unless it has blatant signs, like a black tip or a hammerhead.

    And rockfish don't have teeth

    This is a reality in every coastal area. It just happens to be more prevalent in areas with warmer ocean temps. The warmer the water throughout the year, the more humans are in the water and become potential targets of interaction. I.E. Hawaii, Florida etc.... There are more people per square foot of beach in the water most of the year than anywhere else in US.

    In the summer time, the potential increases along the entire east coast, exponentially.

    First reported attack ever in Delaware, and the boy was spared all his limbs... Sounds like a regular ol day in Central Florida.

    The link you posted in the other thread said that there have been 9 attacks in Delaware in the past 100 years. The last attack was in 2007 or something by a Sand Tiger at Rehobeth.

    DE and MD do have a couple of the least amount of harassment and incidents according the ISAF. Conneticut and Delaware are the only two states in recorded history to NOT have a fatality though. Interesting numbers. Especially since bullsharks regularly make their way in and out of a large portion of the Chesapeake bay and with all that OC influx. DE and MD is an awefully small stretch of coast though in comparison to some states like NC, SC, GA, FL etc.
