Maybe if it wasn't resting inside the KAYAK he was paddling.

**** this misleading thread title, I want to see him film that on a surfboard...

Well, there was that too! He also had his buddies out there with him.

Help me out guys, what is that a mako? That wouldn't be a good thing. Then again I am far from any kind of shark expert. I did do the feeding frenzy once though. Wish I had the footage of that.

That was a Great White shark, probably about a 10-12 footer. They're all over the coast of California and in larger numbers because the water temperature has been hovering around 58-60 degrees this entire year. Great Whites thrive in cooler temperatures.

I've got a friend and neighbor that swims about a 1/4 mile out in the ocean everyday and does about five miles per day up of the Malibu coast. I've asked him on several occasion "How can you do that, knowing Great Whites are everywhere out there?"

His response: "Oh, I know they're out there. I just don't think about it".

:eek:

Oh, I have, believe me.

He's a 46 year old, wealthy single guy that bangs around with 23-25 year chicks. He claims they're far more vicious than any Great White.

I watched a video 3-4 years ago that showed a Great White get caught inland in Mass, or Conn.


That was a scary video, too.

They dont eat people, they attack when they're confused on the prey. Kayaks, surfboards, alot of those types of "rafts" look like seals etc, so they bite, then realize it's not fish/edible etc, and usually let go, problem is, their bite does some considerable damage to just about anything.

This is true, but I would rather not take the chance.....

I'd be surprised if that shark lived very long since it was stuck in fresh water.

They ended up "leading" it out into open water when the tide came up the next day. The shark was very weak, but I believe it made it.



As for fresh water, I wonder how long it will be before some idiot takes a small bull shark and dumps it into a freshwater lake.

Man ive stepped off in some holes of water in the middle of the night that would make 90% of this BBs balls shrink just at the thought.

What am I asking, you probably noodle for Great Whites and get pissed when you only pull out 6-7 footers.

God, I hope never. The bull sharks that live in the gulf have adapted to the waters of the Mississippi, where they're occasionally found hundreds of miles inland.

They're brutal fuckers.

On one shark week episode they said that Bulls have been spotted over a 1000 miles up river in the Mississippi and they can be found almost anywhere in the Amazon.


That is some scary shit.

Now bullsharks are a different story.....those fuckers attack anything.

I heard they found one all they way up the MS river into STL area.

I saw on Shark week that Bullsharks have some membrane/glands that produces enough salt nutrients to keep the shark alive while swimming in fresh water, thats why you see them around fresh water river mouth areas, and some can go really far inland once they're adapted to the water.

I've caught a bullshark with some friends off a pier one time. Pulled him up out of the water and threw him on the pier. Eventually got the hook out of his mouth. I remember feeling it's fin and rear tail and skin. What amazed me about the bullshark is their skin is like armor. Then 3 of us picked him up, heavy as fuck, and eventually and tossed his ass back into the water 30 ft below.

dont like to noodle. Not saying i wont. But i do other things on the river at night thatd make mens skin crawl.

Missouri has some of the largest fresh water crayfish in the US. Aint nothin better than a bottle, snorkel,headlamp, and mesh bag, hand catching foot long crawdads. And i fear no snake,turtle,stickpile or slough when it comes to froggin and crawdadin.
If its in there im bulldoggin it.
A few times ive gone off the front of the boat only to see a 5ft cotton mouth right next to the frog. And many a times ive tied off and sunk myself into holes to catch them big big crawdads.

walked up out of a slough with my dad once right into a HUGH ball of cotton mouths. Hundreds of em, gave my pops the heedy jeebies. I must of caught 10 big ones just to see if i could.

When i was in Fl & TX i seen sharks, didnt bother me either.

Damn, I didn't know that Crawdads grew that big. The biggest I have seen are 6-7".


My favorite bar in Tulsa was Crawpappys, though, so I have that going for me. :)
