...Close to Shore: A True Story of Terror in an Age of Innoncence, Author: Micheal Capuzzo
i started reading this one year as my beach book. i had to put it away, as i was getting too freaked out. very interesting, tho. i keep meaning to revisit it...perhaps on a winter weekend getaway snowbaord trip to vermont. someplace far, far away from the ocean!
that said, jaws was just on.
"you're gonna need a bigger boat!"
Nice thread ( except for sh@tbird's remark Thanks to the OP for starting it. If this was Fl instead of NJ - Mid Atlantic, someone unfortunately probably would of ended up in the ER getting some stitches....
I think if they were catching great whites they would be in a bit of trouble, i believe they're on the endangered list. a fisherman caught a 7' "stray" pup about four years ago near indian river inlet and was levied fines and possible jail time.
I also saw a Thresher in Deal last year around this time. Right between the two jetties at a well known spot. I know it was a Thresher b/c I've caught one before. It was cool as ****. Maybe because I longboard most of the time (as I was that day) and have the option of laying on my board out of the water, it wasn't that big of a scary thing for me.
