Downtown Miami, Florida - September 14, 2008 (11:37am)
On July 8, 1996 this rare great white shark was caught off the waters of Bayside in the Atlantic Ocean. This 3,418 pound shark was fought for 6½ hours by the great Raul Tercilla (vice president / general manager of Bayside Marketplace) aboard the fishing yacht Scalper.I have seen real sharks on at least two separate occasions (on August 25, 1997 and on December 23, 2004 according to my log book) while scuba diving in Jamaica and I am not afraid of them. Contrary to popular belief, sharks usually do not bother humans. In fact we are not even on their menu, LOL!
