Great White off Florida!

Got this message from Gary in Florida.

Just got this in....4 days old..... Awesome to see a Great White off Florida.
This is when they are migrating south into the Gulf of Mexico so the time frame fits for a white being in our waters now. They begin returning back north and come by again around May. They are either mating or pupping in the Gulf...and very deep.......1000ft......but I don't think anyone knows for certain yet.

I thought you might be interested in this message posted on the Fl Sportsman message board-

Last week my best friend was coming back in form offshore when they saw a bunch of birds. Curious to see what they were after, they stopped and looked like to be a huge black drum. They videod the rest of a great white having a little snack about 6 to 7 miles outside of the mayport jetties.

Was it really "at least 18 feet" as suggested by the original YouTube clip? Hmmmmm...

Anyway, it's a cool document - Enjoy!

PS: story here.

Good to see people reacting to a gws without the need to pull out fishing gear, guns, knives,

Awesome! And I'm not sure I buy the 18' estimate it either.
