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.

Now there's new fodder for B-movie buffs--walking sharks.

Before you go crazy with fear, rest assured this beast in harmless to humans and haunts the sea floor in search of small fish and invertebrates.

The walking shark is a new species of shark, previously unknown to science.

You can check out a few more facts in this report from the Daily Mail.





Remember to take the hooks outta yer pocket before ya sit down!

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!

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!

Big bull shark found off Florida

June 7th 2012 17:19
Apex species, including Man, never cease to fascinate me.

While there's plenty of room for speculation, few will argue that humans top the list. After that, maybe we have to worry about bears.

One answer to a mystery

Mt. McKinley

Another answer has been served up concerning the mystery of Alaska's Iliamna Lake Monster. Further, this theory may also serve to explain the mystery of the Loch Ness Monster.

Here's a real Jaws

April 27th 2012 18:33
great white
There's quite a bit of distance between Martha's Vineyard and the Sea of Cortez but some fishermen landed a 20ft. Great White.

While 20 feet is short of the monster fish depicted in Jaws, it's still longer than just about any three people reading this blog laid end to end.

Shark eating shark

February 14th 2012 22:54
Common wisdom would dictate anyone writing a freshwater fishing blog shouldn't obsess about sharks as much as I do. Maybe it's because I'm land-locked????

Anyhooooo, here's a link to an article that's making the rounds and a great picture of a shark eating another shark.

Orca vs. shark

That in itself is pretty cool but when a dog gets into the act, the gloves come off.

New Year's Jaws Marathon

December 29th 2011 23:34
For many of us, New Year's day is a day of football but you can start the festivities early this year because Spike TV is running its Jaws Marathon starting starting New Year's Eve starting at 9 A.M. with Jaws 4-Jaws the Revenge. There's not a lot that can be said about the fourth and final offering of the Jaws series. When the movie came out in 1987, the general response was, "Yuck!"

Jaws movie still
Fortunately, the other movies in the series will also be on tap with the original being shown in back to back presentations starting at 7:06 pm.
