Anyway, we were in Surfside Beach, South Carolina last week, and we did a hardy amount of fishing. We (me mostly) attempted surf fishing but generally failed miserably at it. We also did a little fishing from a rented pontoon boat (which was essentially thwarted by a jellyfish attack on the Sciencette) and on a head boat (aka a party boat). We had better luck on the head boat, with the missus out-fishing me 8-to-1 (kill!), but it was too crowded to enjoy completely, and we largely lack pictures of the fish that my mom, Ludacris, and ourselves caught.
Pretty boring post, eh?
BAM - SHARK!!!a pier. If you use my leg in the background for scale, you'll notice that this leviathan was no less that 40 feet long, had teeth the size of a yeti, and must have weighed in at several metric tons.
The only unfortunate part about this incident is that I wasn't allowed to keep and eat the shark. It's illegal to fish for sharks from the pier, ostensibly because they don't want the swimming tourists to hear that sharks actually do inhabit the water they're splashing around in. I know, it should be obvious that sharks are in the ocean, but ignorance is bliss...and a lot of the people I saw down there seemed pretty ignorant...
In any event, I'm itching to do some more fishing. I'll keep the millions and millions of Dr. Yeti's fans posted on my
