16ft+ white shark Mary Lee continues to ping north toward Atlantic City, New Jersey! She’s traveled over 140 miles in the past 24 hours.

With 5’ viz that could be exciting!

Bacon is too good for a fish.

She’s still there, this weekend will be warmer than the last one. Maybe shark river would live up to it’s name.

I did see a small shark in Shark River once, something like the resorts that have a whaleshark on their website, they saw one once but a great white in Shark River would sure clear out the OW students! :)

I was going to ask if you wanted to do Shark River Sunday evening, I think high tide is 6:30pm, the water and air should be about the same temperature and we could see if the seahorses are still there or went to warmer waters.

I’m open for that, Carl said the seahorses are all gone, he went about a month ago and said all he saw up at Maclearie was mounds of spider crabs. Maybe we could check A street (I’ve still only been there once). I’ll have to confirm this all with my wife first though, but I’m open for sure.

Better chance of seeing Mary Lee at A Street :)

She was right off Belmar on the 17th of this month at 2:52 in the morning. Right now she’s off of Wildwood...but she’s tracking north (coming up from Delaware). I’m pretty sure I’d soil myself if I saw a 16ft white shark at Maclearie Park...would sure make the surface swim to the stairs interesting. Weather is looking cool for the weekend, as of now I have no plans, it will be cold when we come out as the sun will be gone. I say we go for one more and call it a season. I’ll give you a call on Sunday for the definitive plan.
