Excellent story Ross. The comment you made about poking it on the nose is exactly how my Popo used to describe it.

Sharks don't bother me much. I've been bumped by and seen some pretty big ones up close and personal like. Not cool at all when you're chest deep. I've had some close calls with stingrays too, again not too bothered by them either. I stepped into some quicksand at POC one time. That wasn't any fun at all. Rattlesnakes and alligators, on the other hand, are 2 things I hope I never encounter on a wade. But, my biggest fear wading (and fishing in general) is Vibrio. I've seen what that carp can do first hand and I pray I never get it. I have found that drift fishing in the boat will produce fish almost as well as wading and you can cover a lot more ground.

I never get out of the boat anymore. Used to wade on occasion, but I found myself so tense that I didn't enjoy it. Lost a few fish off the stringer on several occasions too. If I can't catch fish out of the boat.... oh well, at least I can relax and have a good time.

Went on a wade trip with a guide several years ago and he kept putting us out in water that was 4' - 5' deep. I'm vertically challenged, and needless to say that was not a good day for me. Miserable the entire time.

Nope, if I have to get out of the boat these days, I'd just quit fishing.

May have been that brown shark repellent that you excreted into the bay that ran the shark off.

That is why I like winter day and night wading when the sharks are out of the bay. I wade at night but I can get a little nervous when you hear some big fish busting bait in the dark when you are wading chest to waist deep on a summer night. Big Jack or shark?
