18 foot Great White 25 miles off Wrightsville Beach
Youtube ^

Posted on 11/30/2011 8:19:20 PM PST by Sprite518

This great white circled our 21ft boat for 20 minutes and made contact with the boat (slapped its tail on the boat). We were about 25 miles southeast of Wrightsville Beach.

Here is a Great White Shark just off the North Carolina Coast. The guys are cussing, but it's still amazing to look at.

18 foot shark and a 21 foot boat? I think they’re going to need a bigger boat...

Must have been using good bait to attract that thing!

The first thing I thought about is how I would prep and cook an 18 footer, and how many it would feed. Made me smile a little

I'll need lemons for garnish. Probably 50 lbs..

Mankind rocks when a little guy cook (former engineer) can think about eating the top predator of the sea.

Opposable thumbs and tools are cool.

We have seen them all. Smithsonian, History Channel....,
Ho humm. Yep, they are there. What is the big deal?

My Uncle caught a Sailfish with one hand jumping over his boat. Was in Ripley's Believe It Or Not. Now that had to be exciting.

Lucky he was a well-fed but otherwise friendly shark. Can you imagine what’d happened if he was hungry and unhappy?

It’s especially dangerous 25mi offshore.

Put more chum in the water, Chief.......

LMAO. That great white smelled the bait in the water and their hull looked like a floating carcass. I would've fired up the engine just in case he wanted to taste the fiberglass. They definitely needed a bigger boat. Great video.

......but sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces.

That’s what happens when you bring the buffet cart to the shark’s dining room.

Cool video, except for the morons talking and dropping F bombs every other word out of their stupid mouths. And no way that’s 18ft. The guy who said 12ft had it about right.

LOL! This took a moment to register as I'm half awake.

We did a canoe expedition down the lower part of the Colorado from the Hoover dam earlier this year. I don't even want to think of the reaction I would have had if I had seen one of those things!!!!
