Yes they are out there. A number of years ago (I was in high school) I was fishing just east of Block Island at a place that was referred to at the time as Shark Ledge. I don't see it on my chart now, so it was probably a local name. I was sitting on the side of the boat with my legs hanging over the water. A huge shark came right up out of the water directly in front of me, 50 feet or so away. It brought me right out of my fishing-induced stupor, (Iím not a good fisherman) and I noticed that my legs withdrew themselves into the boat without any conscious direction on my part. My conservative estimate is that I was wide-awake for about seven months following that incident
Now you know why I'm so nervous.
