    Default Bull shark! Not a joke post!!! Buzz's

    Today Willy and crew were helping the Solomon's biologists collect cow nosed rays and they got this 8' 1" Bull shark at Cornfield Harbor He called me to come take pictures and I GLADLY obliged!! I have never touched a shark before. This one felt like sandpaper. They got it right near where people swim down at the park so that is a little disconcerting. I wonder if he has any family still around? I have a lot more pictures I'll put up on our Buzz's brag board down here if anyone comes by. Michael was laughing. He thought he was "doing something" catching a cobia.... Christy

    Wow! I've told people before that sharks were in the bay, but no one believes it! Just glad this one didn't attack anyone!

    That's exactly why he's there, to eat cow nose rays. Pretty darn cool though. After I check the date and realize it's not April 1st, I'll probably forward this to quite a few people. This better get posted on the DNR anglers log.

    Well, now there is 1 less Ray Eater in the water.

    This year seems out of the ordinary, with bull sharks, whiting, blow fish, redfish and other oceanic fish coming in the bay. I believe it is a testament to the efforts in trying to clean up the bay. However, it is probably cyclical and weather related. Any other opinions on all the odd catches this year, or is not that uncommon?

    That is very interesting.

    Who are Solomon's biologists? Are they working for the MD DNR. Why did they kill the shark? Does it have research value--food value? I thought there was a problem with too many rays because too many ray eating sharks had been killed. I thought it was supposed to be a good thing for the sharks to keep the ray population in check.

    These are just questions, not a challenge to anyone.

    I don't have those answers. I just know they were collecting Rays and somehow they shark got involved. I really don't have any answers for you though although I do agree it is sad and unfortunate that the shark is no longer alive. I just took pictures. Christy
