It is extremely unusual for great white sharks to get thus near to the shoreline, but as the water temperature rises along the Jersey shore, this could change. In most cases, they remain at a greater distance.
A great white shark that was about half the size of the fisherman’s 23-foot boat was captured on tape by the fisherman and his kid as they were cruising off the coast of New Jersey’s southernmost tip.
This summer, Jim Piazza and his son Jayden went fishing at Sea Isle for the duration of the summer. They came dangerously close to being attacked by a shark that was twelve feet in length and was hiding nearby.
Piazza responded to a question about the size of the shark by saying, “The pictures don’t do it credit.” “It sat there inconspicuously the entire time. That is something that has never come up in my experience previously.” He made a recording of the conversation and then posted it on his Facebook page afterward.
