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.

I'm going to Oak Island with the fam for 9 days in the beginning of August. I think Oak Island is like an hour N of Myrtle. Nestled between Holden Beach and Cherry Grove.

Anyway, I like to swim in the ocean and I will go out far as long as I'm with someone. I like the rush, not gonna lie.

However, once I go out, and I don't care how deep it is, once something rubs up against my leg I am GTFO and not getting back in.

I also heard that when you see small schools of fish jumping out of the water around where the waves break, that is a sign that there is a shark around.

We have a friend that lives down there and is getting married this coming weekend and thought about it but Hell, I still haven't recovered from last week. Another week or weekend would kill me. What part of MB are you staying at?

Sambuca is of the DEVIL!!! A evil concoction created from the fiery pits of hell!!! I used to enjoy it. Then one night i enjoyed way to much. The result was a devestating hangover unlike anything I had ever experienced. The memories still haunt me worse than the orange cisco and crazy horse malt liquor episode of 1989. Got a little off shark topic. My bad.

They say that the majority of people that have spent anytime in the ocean have been within 20 feet of a shark and never knew it. I surfed a lot growing up in NJ and saw just one. One time I had something bump my board as I was laying on it and it scared the bejeezus out of me. Don't know what it was, and don't want to know but it was either a shark or a dolphin. Never got back in the water that day.

Stepped on a small bullshark as a kid in the channel to the ICW at the northern end of Cherry Grove as a kid. People who think Jesus was the only one to walk on water obviously never saw me that day.

Well this is lovely... I've been at the coast since early june and the only thing that I've been paranoid about is rip-currents.

I have noticed fish jumping in the surf and just thought it was normal. But now that I think about it, when I see small fish jumping at the lake, that's a good place to cast for a big bass. So if these fish jumping out the ocean are almost as big as a nice bass themselves, how big is what's scaring them?!

Oh boy.
