I would have paid money to see this!

August 6th 2014 17:38
Here's an account of an Australian Crocodile battling a bull shark.

There have been varying opinions on the outcome of a shark/crocodile confrontation so, I'm not gong to spoil the story and let you in on what happened. Just keep in mind the croc is 80 years old and missing a front leg!

Read all about it!

Archer takes shark

July 26th 2014 21:09
Here's a neat story about a guy taking a shark with a bow.

I've embarrassed myself by bow fishing but know one guy who is actually pretty good at it and regularly uses his bow for carp.

People in Australia or South Africa are probably shaking their head over this but, it's BIG news in the U.S.

Write off the missing diver

July 18th 2014 03:11
I must be getting jaded because I don't view Animal Planet, History Channel, Discovery, or Yahoo with the same respect I used to have for them. Yahoo was the first to go and then the others did one thing or another that made me shake my head and wonder, "Why?"

After GrindTV ran this story, you can pretty much add them to the list. Of course, they're closely associated with Yahoo so, you have to question their TRUE news gathering abilities.

Great white shark
We're gonna need a bigger boat!

Saturday's report of a Great White attack off the California Coast really comes as no surprise although shark attacks, especially those of Great Whites, are rare.

39 years of JAWS

June 21st 2014 14:12
Jaws movie poster
I though it would be more impressive to wait until next year and mention that the movie that scared us out of the water, no matter where you live, is 40 years old. But, the people over at Huffington Post must not have agreed because this link was on Facebook this morning.

Before the FCC created their exclusivity ruling, meaning a network has exclusive rights to a program or movie, I saw Jaws eight times in one year on TV. Before you shake your head, you have to realize I was trying to see how many times I could see it. I like to say it was my "Year of the Shark Watch." When you add to the total a viewing at the theater plus three more times on TV you get an even dozen. The only other film to come close to that total is The Longest Day which I've only seen 6 or 7 times. (AND these movies were released over a decade apart so, you can draw your own conclusions.)

New shark discovered in Carolina

November 8th 2013 15:41
According to this article, it appears as if a new species of hammerhead shark has been discovered off the South Carolina coast.

It comes an no surprise that the discovery was made off the East Coast of the U.S. During certain times of the year, this area is like a freeway for migratory sharks. On a more personal level, it was this area, more specifically the Outer Banks, that taught me most sharks you find are not like the shark in Jaws.

He'll just have to go hungry...

This is an interesting story about a seal that got away from a Great White.

I wonder if we'll ever see this one on Shark Week!

Walking sharks? Not as bad as it sounds

September 8th 2013 01:41
What was that joke in SNL? There was a knock at the door, from inside a guy says, "Who's there?" and the answer comes, "Land shark."

And then, there are those horror stories about snakeheads devouring pets and babies.

Shark Week Fallout Continues

August 25th 2013 01:03
I was beefing about "Shark Week" a few days ago and I thought that was the end of it.

How wrong I was!

There's a new halibut record

halibut

Here's a story about a German angler who hooked a 515 pound halibut! That's more than enough for a new record. The old record was a paltry 419 pounds.

Shark Week draws fire

August 7th 2013 21:16
In the past Discovery's Shark Week has always been a ratings bonanza and Discovery itself, has been an oasis of intelligence in a sea of celebrity crap and Kardashian-Wanna-Bes. That is until now.

Shark Week began Sunday with "Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives" which was the worst waste of celluloid I've seen in a long time. I didn't learn anything and I almost anticipated what was said.

Shark Week Kicks off Aug. 4

July 19th 2013 01:06
The MLB All-Star game and Independence Day always mean it's summer. Now we're heading into the 26th year of another Summer Institution, Discovery Channel's Shark Week which begins this year Aug. 4.

Will you get to watch "Jaws?" No. Will you learn anything about shark fishing? Probably not. One the other hand, anything you do learn will beat the heck out of summer reruns!

Teens Catch Great White!

April 10th 2013 17:56
For most high schoolers, just hanging out with the college crowd in Ft. Lauderdale during Spring Break is an unforgettable experience. Add to that the excitement of catching a Great White Shark and you have a vacation like no other!

That's what recently happened to some Georgia high school baseball players when they were in Florida for a Spring Break Baseball Tournament.

Going for broke

December 26th 2012 01:08
I have no idea what language is spoken in this video or even what they're doing. All I know is that it sort of reminds me of the part in "Jaws" where all the locals go out on the water and try and capture the shark.

Anyway, a shotgun to kill a shark? I wonder if they were using buckshot or slugs.

Sharks falling from the sky!

October 27th 2012 01:52
I guess I'd better not make any analogies about raining cats and dogs or I may get a plagiarism suit.

Getting right to it-- here's an article confirming a shark actually fell from the sky and was found on a California golf course.

Maybe the worst shark movie ever!

October 19th 2012 01:38
If there are two things I like, they gotta be shark movies and bad movies! Look at it this way, like I always say, you have to watch a stinker now and then to appreciate a good flick. This one pretty well fills the bill for both categories.

SHARK ATTACK 3: MEGALODON has been around for a few years but I never caught it--even on late-night TV when you see low-budget time fillers like this one. Then, I thought it would eventually show up on SyFy here in the States but, evidently, they have standards too!

More than once, fishing has been slow and someone has joked about throwing explosives into the water and scooping up the fish as they float to the top.

It turns out some fishermen off the coast of Australia and then Washington State did just that. The thing is--they weren't just your average Joe out wetting a line before heading back to the office on Monday.
