Bull Sharks

You know that summer is coming when these guys start to show up in the shallows.  I took this photo yesterday of  a six foot bull shark in less than three feet of water near Cabbage Key.  This is just one of the reasons I don't go swimming around here, although stingrays and jellyfish are far more are far more of a threat to people.  Even though shark attacks are basically unheard of in this part of Florida, there are some really big animals cruising the flats right now.  These fish are great to see while we're on the water and even more fun to catch, but they should all be released unharmed.
