Bottom line is that sharks usually don't attack unprovoked or unless they mistake you for something else. Mistakes happen, but why are we so focused on shark ATTACKS???

One word: JAWS.

LOL - Agree 100%, jaws even as bad as the special effects in today’s films still makes you think when you are out on the water. I have seen open water, deep blue sea and none compare to that child hood Jaws memory.... even though go back and watch it now and think why it is so fake...

I'm safe, I got a "no sharks" (red circle with red cross through it over the silhouette of a great white) sticker on my Underground Magic Carpet 158 so no worries...right...?

Ah Jaws, nostalga. I can remember that movie being given credit for some dive shops closing in Ft. Lauderdale back in the mid 1970's. I think it compelled me to stop doing the odd solo night dive for a while. Hollywood! It is probably part of the phenomena.

A cobia following a stingray. I have seen up to six cobia tailing a single large stingray at times.

There is no places really here in the tampa area to do spear fishing is there? I heard you have to go pretty far off the coast or down south pretty far before the water clears up enough... or is that not true? i think a forum deeperblue something has some AWESOME spearfishing pictures if you want to see more.. think deeperblue.net then go into their forums looks just like this one they have really neat stuff..

sorry off the topic ....
