Yet do any of us know anyone who's ever caught one ?? 

40 years fishing around here and I don't.

If boat fish count, someone was just telling me he got one trolling.

There was a thread on this somewhere a few months earlier, someone posted a picture holding one and I think the Verrazano, or some other recognizable landscape was in the background. It wasn’t a monster, maybe a 3.5 or 4 footer

I've heard of guys snagging them while drifting for fluke.  For whatever reason I see them breaching mostly in july/august.  I've heard stories about catching em on clams, my tinfoil theory is that guys arent doing alot of anchored up bottom fishing with clams in these months (perhaps this is the only time they're around in any decent quantities), also I think we put them near extinction a while back so there probably just arent alot of em around.

I have seen a few caught in the Georgetown/Cape Romaine area of S.C.
