The Sharks do hate pigs blood.  My cousin and I were in Amitty, and this 30 ft Great white comes up to our boat and takes a huge bite out of it.  I said to our captain, " Were gonna need a bigger boat. "   Just then, Mr. Hollands Opus had a close and counter with it, ( Ha !! Get it ? Close and counter, and Mr. Hollands Opus ? Ha hahahahaaaa ! LOL.) The captain said we were gonna detour it away with Pigs blood, and sure enouph it went away......for 5 minutes !!!  Later it came back and chopped the captain in five parts, starting from the legs first, abdominals second and the the ....Okay 3 pieces.  You shouldv'e heard him scream. But I blew the S.O.B. up and Mr. Holland and I found some buays' and floated to shore.   Hey !!!!  They should make a movie about this !!!!!

Ha dude I am a surfer out of VA. and I come down every year for at least a couple of weeks - a month and I am interested in taking the trip to olies and witches rock. I stay in nosara and am a friend of Harry Henkly (coca nut harry). We will be down in Feb. this year o8 from the 5th till the 4th of march and i have alot of friends who would like to go that are coming down with me (about 6 total at the time i gave you). Harry has told me what it costs to go what is your price per person and we want to go when the conditions are right. Harry said it's a little fickel. Any info would help . THANKS RAY

Jaws the Shark

I'm the cousins nephews, Aunts, granchild of the shark killed in the first Jaws movie.  Anyone who knows Roy Shieder and tells me where he is, I will never attack you.....Unless I really hungry and unless your not already leaking your blood.  I have a bone to pick with him.   My brother was killed instantly in another shark movie and it wass Roys idea.  We quit doing Jaws movies on the account that us sharks weren't being paid. He dicked my brother over too and now he's dead.  I catch that dude in the ocean, and there won't be anything left of him to bury. You thought that shark catcher guys death was gruesome, wait and see what I have in store for Roy. Him not paying his taxes is the least of his problems.

Real funny Christine, I was a lifeguard at Siaconset when the entire Cape was plagued by Mako, Tiger, and , a great white. They never attacked surfer or swimmer in that summer of 73'. Poor tom , nothing else to do, but watch re-runs of shitty movies and that gets one in surfer's brotherhood? Sorry, Gerbil Slobbers Furmball, ya got to pay your dues before yo sing da blues, and that means, real water time, something none of you have ever done- suck eggs for New Years!
