    13 foot 1000 pound Great White caught off Lauderdale

    A mile and a half offshore! Make ya want to go to Fort Lauderdale?

    FWIW, they're out there all the time, chasing Bluefish when they come south. It's not that unusual, just later in the year than usual..

    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    White sharks making a comeback off California



    They are fond of eating seals and sea lions here. Sometimes you see partial remains on the beach at Point Reyes.

    And that's one of the reasons they're protected here in the waters of California and why harvesting most shark species here in Ca is frowned upon by responsible anglers (even the ones without protection of the law).

    'cause it's hard to manage marine mammals directly, you mean?

    Is that related to the recent sea lion pup strandings (ie., drawing the sharks in)?
