Youd be amazed at what we catch just surf fishing. Last summer I watched a guy pull up a hammerhead on the delaware coast. Mind you, this is just as far as we can cast, so maybe 50ft or so (ive never seen a hammerhead this far north). 3 foot stingrays, dogfish, skate, you name it. Makes for a good dinner but you feel them creeping by your feet. Just dont think about it.

Yup, every time I put my toes in the ocean I reflect on how my position in the food chain drops from predator to prey.

WTF were those people thinking?

Maybe they had just seen it feed big time on a dead whale or something.

Yup. When you are in the water, you are in their home. They make the rules.

I think for tourist reasons. Fatal Shark attacks there are just called accidental swimming deaths.
