100 percent sand tiger. There actually alot of them in the sound. they like structure and wrecks. Nice catch. They are also called grey nurse sharks, and snaggle tooth sharks for obvious reasons.Toungue

I wonder how close they come to shore? It would be pretty scary to catch one from my kayaka.

I've always been puzzled by the fact that we don't really see sharks in the Sound. Salinity perhaps? Prey?

I always assumed this was a shark in the sound, but the "experts" have assured me this cocktail was cut in half by a larger blue.

I always figured the tooth marks were too large and spaced to be a blue.

i know someone who had been wading for striped bass when all of a sudden there was a swirl the size of a car and 20lb stripers flying out of the water like bunker and someone else who was fishing BIG blues who had bunker packed in a corner when all of a sudden 15lb blues started flying out of the water for their lives. western sound, ct shoreline.
