I can imagine. That’s where the grown ones are. We are going to have a blast either way. Hell, if we have stand on the beach the entire trip it beats work.

We will have fun even if we just fish off of the beach all week. I’m mainly just looking for areas with deeper water from salvo south. I’d love to see the boys hook something that will make em sweat lol.

I have the equipment you need, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like going down the pond chasin' bluegills and tommycods. Those sharks, swallow you whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', an' down you go.

Now that is a cool collection, where did you find the barrel?
The barrel is original and production used, though not screen used. It was one of several used to float the special effects platforms. They were all black. The special effects crew took five of them and painted them yellow to represent the shark, since most of the time the mechanical sharks were not working. I purchased two of them from Lynn and Susan Murphy of Martha’s Vinyard. I painted them yellow to match the ones seen on film. T
he Murphy’s are well known as having worked on the film production crew. Lynn purchased many of the original props after production wrapped up, including the ORCA boat which was sunk at the end of the movie. That boat was a fiberglass replica of the original orca used to repeatedly sink during several takes of filming the sinking sequence . I have a piece of that boat too.

It works yes I shot it once. But...Those harpoons would be nearly impossible to replace if broken. So, it’s a fully functioning museum piece now.

What kind of shark was that? It had hooks all in its face where it had been hanging out at the pier I guess. We got all of them out except one kingfish rig that was buried.
