Online PR News – 21-August-2012 – ca, CA – Cherry Grove, SC (WMBF) - `21..08.2012- When the South Carolina bull shark leaped out of the water stealing the fisherwomen’s catch, it was as if the memories of the super movie ”JAWS” has come back in real life.
In fact; it could have been a scene from the movie itself.
Woman who was fishing in the North Myrtle Beach along the 800 Sea Mountain Highway was nearly stunned when she found a bull shark leaping out of the water and eating away her catch just as she was reeling back the Red Drum using the hauling line.
"I was actually kind of scared because I seen it jumps and actually thought it could jump up here and get me," Sara Brame commented to a news channel. "Because the tide was all the way up, and it was probably 3 feet below me."
The incident was not fabricated but real life fact. It was filmed by William Moore who incidentally happens to be the fiancé of Sarah Brame. According to him the incident was unbelievable and for a moment they thought it was not happening. That is why they continued to watch the video over and over again and the lost catch was also an evidence to confirm that what they had viewed and filmed was true.
Interesting comments were made by the step father of the woman who said that the fishing group was unaware of the Myrtle Beach Shark loitering underwater while they were fishing above. However the Myrtle Beach shark video shot by Williams confirms the incident. It was the first incident of its kind for Myrtle Beach fishing charters as well.
Over the years North Myrtle Beach has been one of the most popular fishing arenas for thousands of people fishing there that include both professional and amateur fishers.
“First time we laid eyes on him. We didn't even know he was there," the step father commented. According to the viewers the shark is likely to be weighed 200 pounds and 4 to 6 feet in length.
Since its appearance the camera happy bull shark in the Cherry Grove that was made famous after the video clipping, has not gone back to deep sea and still continues to hover around Cherry Grove inlet. Fishermen of the area believe that since its first appearance in July this year the shark is still around which proves that the encounter was not a freak.
"It's at least 7 or 8 feet long," said Suzy Smith of Fish-On Outfitters. She said her son-in-law, Captain Brian Costello, recently had a close encounter with the shark.
Incidentally the experience of Costello was similar to Sarah Brame. He also bends down in the water to get his catch when the shark leapt out of water and took away the catch. With two such incidents already reported with proof there is no reasons to disbelieve that bull shark has arrived in Myrtle Beach fishing zone.
