Chesapeake Bay, near Route 50 Bay Bridge and Sandy Point State Park…at last I have the ultimate excuse not to do the 'Polar Bear Plunge' in January. It's not only crazy to jump into freezing cold water, it could be down right dangerous!   

Annapolis MD
While the vessel 'Dawn Raider' out of Markleys Marina in Essex, Md. was fishing for Striped Bass (also locally known as Rock Fish), a Great White Shark was hooked in the mouth but only resisted slightly for 15 minutes before it came up alongside the boat to have a look; long enough for one of the crew members to slip a rope a round it's tail!!! 'And that's when things heated up!!
....  The Shark took off towing the 42 foot fishing boat backwards through the water at about 7 Knots. Just like in JAWS, the boat was taking on water over the stern and the crew watched in horror as the shark would actually jump completely out of the  water at times. This went on for an hour before the shark finally drowned. She weighed in at 1035 LBS. It is suspected she followed a weak El Nino current into local waters in search of food.  Although mid 60 degree water is considered ideal for these sharks, the larger ones can tolerate water in the low 50s.

NOTE: THE TAIL FIN IS THE SIZE OF A MAN!

I believe the feds would be all over the captain too if he did in a great white.

That would be a MIGHTY large fine if it were true. They are federally protected I believe.

Interesting how the Chesapeake is not even remotely close to Ocean Shores, WA

Just change the story to fit whatever circumstance you need- after all it is fiction couldn't be any MORE fiction.

Kinda like our politicians.....
