Hells yeah I saw this yesterday on reddit. I think the location is somewhere near Cherry Grove.

Man this is why I refuse to swim/chill in the canals/channels when at the beach. That water is murky and you have no idea what's lurking beneath.

Also, a poster on reddit said this is a "bull shark" I don't know wtf that means but my GF said that they won't attack humans. I would not want to take a chance because a shark will fug your world up.

BS on a bullshark attacking humans.

Most shark bites are by bull sharks because of the fact they like to come into brackish, channel areas. The water being so murky a shark would reaction bite in an instant and one that size will cause major problems if it got your thigh area and hit an artery. Most deaths are where people are hit once and bleed out before they can get to help.

Actually bull sharks, tiger sharks and great whites are the one's that attack human's the most. Bull Sharks swim in shallow water and that's why they are so dangerous to humans. Most time they won't kill you unless you bleed out but they are extremely agressive.

Growing up sailing in Banks Channel at Wrightsville, I saw numerous sharks in waters like this. Never thought much about it as a kid, but now? Fug that.

Sent to my broinlaw yesterday and we've kayak fished in waters like that. If I were bringing in a drum and that happened next to the kayak, I would've pulled off the walking on water miracle.

There have been 5 shark "attacks" off MB this year. 4 in one day and 1 about a week earlier. Happened about a month ago and most likely bull sharks.

I go down there quite frequently and was there just last week and the only thing that has attack me is about 4 bottles of Sambuca and a couple of gallons of vodka. I barely escaped with my life.
