    It was pinged 20 times off the Virginia Capes and twice inside the inlet in Wallops Island...I wouldn't worry about it- unless it surfaces along side your kayak...for some reason Great Whites seem fascinated by Kayaks...few real attacks, just curious- Cape Cod is the white shark hotspot with whites showing up in large numbers every year after the seals

    Kayaks may look like a seal from a shark's point of view below them.

    I wonder how Mary Lee crossed Route 9 in NJ? Land shark?

    yeah I mean I wouldn't worry until the time to worry comes but definitely something worth sharing. I love this shark tracker but happened to see it on FB and thought worth the share.

    Back in the day when I was sharking, we had a Great White in the chum slick off Virginia Beach (SE Lumps) threw every thing at it- no takes- big filets of marlin, whole bluefish, tuna heads- nothing- it cruised up on the surface within ten feet of the boat and looked at us with those big, black lifeless eyes- spooky stuff...
