Boston.com - Two great white sharks were spotted off the coast of Chatham on Thursday, the first documented sightings of the 2012 summer season, according to the Sandwich-based Cape Cod Shark Hunters. “I spotted a couple yesterday,” spotter pilot George Breen said today. “One was about a quarter-mile offshore and the bigger of the two was about 50 yards off.” Breen discovered the sharks during his routine spotting flight Thursday afternoon. He said the bigger one was 16 feet long, likely weighed more than 2,000 pounds, and was hunting seals near the shore.
Martin, it’s all psychological. You yell barracuda, everybody says, “Huh? What?” You yell shark, we’ve got a panic on our hands on the Fourth of July. Seriously though I love this shit. Not even joking. Sharks are my thing. Huge shark guy. My dream vacation is to swim with a great white in Australia. So if I don’t see one of these eat somebody when I’m in Nantucket this week I’m gonna be pissed.
