The New Jersey shark attacks of July 1916

My dad was born in September of 1916.  I was always amazed that my dad was born just a couple of months after this infamous episode in history that occurred that summer.



100 Years Ago.....

Fascinating story. Wasn't the book "Jaws" loosely based on this story?

Peter Benchley claimed that it was not based on that episode.

WTH, I thought this was about Sharks? We ain't got none in Lake Ontario!!!

We do have 30# Salmon though!

And 20#+ Brown and Lake Trout.

When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.
