shark week just started today, but it was a marathon of shows from previous years' shark weeks.

my son is still under the weather, so besides getting some work done around the house, i hung out with him and watched it. he loves sharks. her was a shark for halloween this year past, and he collects fossilized shark's teeth.

he's been bugging me to take him shark fishing when we go to florida.

Please, go way out in the ocean to do that. I knew a guy here where I live that would use a jet ski to drop the shark hook/bait way out from the beach and then pull it in from the beach when a shark took it. The lifeguards asked him to stop doing that. He was pulling in 6 foot sharks through the swimmers on the beach.

Nasty business!

The laws covering that are complicated here. If the fisherman was there first, and then swimmers start knowingly entering the waters he is already fishing in, then legally, the fisherman has the rights on his side. The swimmers infringed on his actions. If the fisherman shows up and starts fishing among people who are already swimming, then he is infringing on thier rights and safety.

My friend always started much before dawn and when no swimmers were there, but was nice enough to quit when asked to. 1200 miles of beaches and someone has to crowd another person....weird.

A parachute isn't needed to skydive. It's only needed if you intend to do it more than once.

I love sharks! Eventually I want to get my scooba certification in part so I can get in a shark cage and take photos of them. I'd also love to swim with some of the safer, less agressive species.

You don't even need scuba cert, a mask, fins and snorkel is all you need. We've seen nurse sharks and snorkeled with whale sharks, truly amazing!

Nurse sharks in Florida Keys and Mexico, whale sharks in Holbox and Isla Mujeres. Anything goes in Hawaii. Also apparently in 18 inches of water in the Carolinas.
