Some years ago, my young daughter asked me if sharks live in the bay. I replied, oh yes very much so, but mostly just sleepy sand sharks etc. She asked, what about GWS's? I replied, no one sees them, but I know deep down they come into the bay. She asked where? I said Alcatraz probably!

I've always considered the waters of that area to be more like the ocean than the bay. This is my confirmation, and to all who called me crazy for believing this, I told you so.

i do agree, but they have said that this is the first documented and seen......i wonder when one will make its way into the carquinez straight, following seals that follow salmon. I am sure the ocean salt water is making its way VERY FAR into the bay waters. With no/less freshwater coming from the rivers, the bay is probably 80% ocean right now.

I thought it was documented a long time ago that gws come into the bay, with the tagging studies.

im sure my native forefathers used to witness this long ago, but they did not have a written language.  :smt003

From the article: 

"We tend to think of white sharks as animals that wander oceans aimlessly," said Block. "What we're learning is how selective a predator they are. The go up to 4,000 miles in a trip and come back to within half a mile of where they left."

suggesting that anyone within a half mile of a reported shark sighting or predatory event has an increased chance (however small) of witnessing a repeat event.  For all yous that insist on fishing da Bean

There is at least one earlier record of a fatal shark attack in the Bay from 1926.  Also, an 18-year old swimmer was fatally attacked while swimming off Baker Beach just outside the Gate in 1958/9.  His girlfriend swam out and pulled him to shore.

I love it when the landlords feed on furbags!  I dislike furbags more than I do GWS...

This!
If you don't know where you're headed, any road could get you there.

yo Pisk,

all those years of yakguiding bay swims, what were some of the sentiments you encountered re: whitey - didn't know, didn't care, doubt they're around, etc.?

Most seem to take it in stride but seems the general feeling was that the bay is safe - I don't think most people thought the landlord collected in the bay. I'd guess that a few people will think twice after seeing this but most open water swimmers are a little cray, anyway...right?

In reality, I doubt there's much danger with group swims - whitey seems more enticed by the lone morsel. Wanna do another crossing?  :smt002  :smt003

Just make sure you are not the slowest swimmer in the group. :smt002
