Fishing in NJ for October, 2012 - Page 64

post #946 of 1336
My brother and I were at Ocean City NJ today from 8:45am-2:45pm. I caught two stripers and the largest was 16". Both were on clam and caught around high tide. The bite was there for about an hour and then no takers at all on clam. No luck with any lures either. My brother got the skunk.

My friend saw him in Belmar and said the dorsal fin was a foot and a half above the surface of the water. I think the CG should be notified about this guy. He's quite large and fearless.

She was cruising fearlessly like you said uncomfortably close to shore, dorsal was at least a foot and a half and a very dark grey. This was the biggest shark that I have ever seen by far; and ive seen my fair share. She was too big to be anything but a white shark IMO

I don't, it is thought the females usually get a little bigger than the males do. Kinda like our friends with stripes

Fished IBSP from 11am until dark. Two skates on clams and had a bass follow a Danny right to my feet and saw another bass flip a tail a few times right in the wash. Girlfriend had a fish on for about half a minute on an AVA but it came undone. That was it for me.

But I was at the pocket today and was watching the boats out at the inlet. Saw something big with what looked like a big dorsal fin swimming south just north of the jetty tip. I could see the outline in the water, looked pretty good sized, wasnt a dolphin. Whatever it was it disappeared as it got closer to the jetty.

I don't post much so perhaps that may detract from my credibility but here goes. Maybe this is a Basking shark. After reading these reports, it sounds like the shark was cruising slowly on the surface for a long period of time. That seems like the behavior of a Basking shark rather than a Great white which tends to go deeper at times. In addition, large Great Whites eat meat. I know there are sometimes seals around in the fall/winter but not in great numbers. Just my guess.

Hey!!!!! Don't go ruining a good fish tale with facts. It was a Great White. 25 footer. And it's looking for people. Not seals. biggrin.gif

First thought was they'd prefer the seals to people because of the thick layer of fat. Then, I went to Walmart and OMG!!! biggrin.gif
