A Houston Chronicle story details a great white shark caught on Panama Beach, Fla.
Ten years ago I wrote a story or Tide magazine fabout the presence of great whites in the Gulf and it was somewhat controversial. The latest research from OCEARCH and this catch proves they are here.
It’s not that I feel vindicated but I am excited! I want to see one.
I am rarely jealous of anyone but for someone to catch a great white in the Gulf of Mexico from the beach, puts me a tad on the jealous side. How awesome would that be?
The amazing fish was measured (9 feet), tagged and released. Look for much more on great whites in coming entries.
