I have been interested in hearing about shark catches/sightings in LI Sound. As many of us know, sand tiger sharks are a fairly common species found in the Sound, as are dogfish...both the smooth and spiny varieties. I have read that the sand sharks can reach lengths of 10 feet in the water of the Sound and that they rank number 4 in unprovoked attacks worldwide(LI Sound newsletter). It is also fairly common knowledge that brown sharks are resident to the Sound. I was surprised to learn that blue, mako, thresher and hammerheads make an occassional appearance in the more easterly regions of the Sound. I'd enjoy hearing any personal experiences! While I think us waders and boaters have more to fear from getting nailed by a bluefish, sharks in the Sound are quite intriguing to me. I often think that if bluefish ever reached 100 pounds no one would ever be able to go in the water!!!
