    Dont know if anyone has seen this...should it really count if a shark is snagged the way this one was...too bad it had to die in the process...Never the less this a huge shark for a Maco...

    Also, I would like to send a prayer out for the family and Blue Angles team as well as the soul of the pilot that passed away in Saturday's crash...May the Lord rest him.

    theres something Im glad I didnt see when I was snorkling in the bahamas on my honeymoon. Im not afraid of sharks but that would have raised the hairs on the back of my neck for sure.

    Thats an amazing shark. I'd hate to meet up with him on an afternoon swim.
