You wanna see a BIG shark........??

This was a small boat with a few guys out fishing off the North Carolina Coast (25 miles of Wrightsville Beach?)

www.boreme.com...

I think this is quite a big one (white or Bull or other...I don't know?......help, ideas....)

It circled for 20 mins !!!!!


A little unnerving even if you are in a boat......

regards

This is the biggest I have seen on film.
Heard rumours of monsters tho, some people say great whites can get to 50ft; now that’s a conspiracy worthy of 'Nellie' stature because its never been filmed or properly caught. The ocean is a big, deep and barely unexplored place.

Oh wow !

MAn, who cares what kind of shark, he won't be racist if you jump into the water. I saw a shark when I was surfing in South America years ago. Next thing....I was running between the waters faster than my Lord Jesus until I reached dry land.

Almost certain that's a great white (bull sharks have a squarer snout and tigers have noticeable stripes). I, of course, know this from my endless hours watching Animal Planet and National Geographic! Whatever kind it is it's a bloody big shark! I didn't think you guys got great whites up that far though, I thought they stayed around the southern oceans of Australia and South Africa

Great white for sure

That's a mighty big fishy


I would be at least nervous.

Great whites, and other big sharks are migrating further than ever before, hotter weather?

Don't know what sort of shark it was but i do know that it was just waiting for them to hook a fish so it could steal the catch. sneaky bugger.
maybe a grey nurse or possibly a bull shark, the size is right for either but the black 'tips' on the dorsal and tail fins don't fit with a grey nurse so it is probably a bull. the only other shark i can think of with those colourations is a black tipped reef shark but they don't get that big.

A quick net search would answer it..

NOTE: i havent read through other post's so sorry if this has already been said or if it's been answered already.

ADD: my bad, there were no black tips, it was the lighting.

After a bit of research i'm pretty sure it's not a great white, the tail fin is all wrong and the tail tapers too much.
It's not a grey nurse as they have a large secondary dorsal fin about 2/3 the size of the main dorsal.
But it does look alot like a bull shark. Hard to tell without seeing more of it clearly.

I wish I could have a better idea of the size of the boat they're on. That's really interesting and had to be a little unnerving. Can't sharks lunge out of the water at a person on a boat?

At around two minutes into the video you can see the pectoral fin is tagged.

What has been madified from the Fukushima radiation effects and GOM whatever happened there effects from oil and oil cleaners. There may be things growing in the seas unimaginable. the food chain even if the shark isnt effected its food may have been this goes for all the sea life that have adapted. Nice vid

Good Spot JBA

I didn't see that before but there would appear to be a tag or marker on his right fin.....

It looks more like a Great White now that I look at it again and Quite a biggy too....

This film clipwas from waters off North Carolina, USA............ i'm not sure (i haven't check Maps yet) but Great Whites can easily exsist in cold waters as well as warmer climes I am reliably informed....... hence the speculation for sightings in the UK................. which as a UK surfer i beleieve !!!

There was a recent confirmed sighting of an Atlantic White Tip, a cousin of the Great White in the Bristol Channel recently !!

Hi JBA

I watched this again and I don't think the fin is tagged, i think that is a smaller fish (one of those that hangs on) following this shark.......
