Hey Jerry or anyone:

Can you provide any insight on the shark status? The web site data seems to be lacking; or have they gone south???

TX, RC

Guess the shark phobic sail at Bird, Orleander, or N beaches.
Lots of fishing boats tossing chum at both surfsailing beaches.
Blues and bulls, I'd guess, with an occasional Tiger?
Think of the bar stories you can tell after your encounter.

Tourists are gone no one cares about sharks in off season
I never saw a share or a fin. Must be like climate change. They are not real?

Wasn't there a spate of bull shark attacks in WFlorida last year on surfers and boogie boarders, swimmers nad some waders? Like over 20 bites and brushes?
Sharks live in the water. We live on land. We someone invades your space, what's your reaction?

Well, it's not usually to bite them.

September 2007, Chatham Cut, I was stalked by a Great White briefly out in the middle break. It rose it's head out of the water right next to my board to look at me then swam away. I was on a plane. Glad I wasn't slogging or even worse water starting.

Some interesting info re California and sailing with sharks here:

When their primary source of food leaves, don't you think they will leave? By the way, tomorrow looks like it will be the windiest SSW day for the past six months. Have any intelligent thoughts entered into your heads about it?

isn't it funny when the tourists leave there are no more reports about sharks. i guess the 'authorities' don't value the local's well-being as much as the tourist's dollars. unfortunately, when the water is too cold for the sharks, it's also too cold for me.

off topic: no one disputes climate change. but manmade climate change is another story. kind of like the immigration issue...no one disputes immigration, the rub arises with illegal immigration. the difference is night and day on both when you leave out the defining prefixes. sorry pete, i'm a bit anal on that stuff!

Ron
Last week there was a lot of shark sightings and reports off Chatham. A tuna fisherman caught a great white and it did a full breach before breaking the line.
As far as have they left or not. I don't think it is that cut and dry. I wonder if they all do infact leave? Remember two years ago they caught an 18 ft in a gill net off Coast Guard December 18th.
Look at the two tracks from the ones they have tagged.

Mary Lee is off Myrtle Beach and the last ping from Genie was Sept. 30th on the South side of Nantucket.
Check out the seal picks from Nantucket October 1st? Could be the work of Genie.
I do think this is when they are trying to load up on calories for the winter. Shocked

I'm guessing most of us have been seen by a big shark or two. Most times they're not interested in us. Odds are small of an attack...getting hit by lightning is said to be more likely, though I wonder if sometimes (evening feeding time, slogging/waterstarting) we might be the guy with the golf club up in the air during a thunderstorm. Just wonderin'
