Who Says Fishing Isn't Exciting?


Sarah Brame caught something unexpected while porch fishing on a coastal river in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Do sharks have asses? Only in the south.

Okay, this is just depressing. Freaking city slickers. "OMFG A SHARK1!" Yes, sharks exist in real life, not just on National Geographic specials. Also: the sky is blue.

I would think that what caused the reaction was more that they didn't expect a shark to be in a coastal area that is probably not salt water. However, several species of shark, especially the bull shark, are not uncommon in freshwater tributaries. Some have been found more than 100 miles inland. I've done a lot of fishing, myself, and can tell you that the shark I caught, in an area where they AREN'T rare was still pretty surprising. The glimse I got was that she had a smaller fish on the line -- certainly the rod wasn't bent far enough for the size of shark shown -- but the shark took her catch off the line. Bull sharks in South Africa are known for hiding under fishing boats and taking catches off the hooks.

Southern and Redneck are different, but the locality accent, can fool the untrained ear. We have Rednecks in the south of course, as well as where you live. The name actually implies that it is someone who works outside (not a plush indoor job) for a living, long enough to get a sunburn, but smart enough to wear a shirt to minimize the damage just to the neck, and sometimes ears and lower arms. But, hey, you knew that already didn't you. You just feel comfortable disparaging ALL Southerners as Rednecks. Have a great day, Ma'am!

I Can truly understand why they are "surprised" , what i dont understand is the stupid respectless and bitter comments.

I love her reaction! I would have been equally as excited and surprised. And yes rude people I think the fact these people are fishing and live coastal they realize sharks exist. However by the tackle they are using its apparent they didn’t expect the larger catch! And a big Amen to Chip. Don’t you love how ignorance assumes that a southern accent indicates education level or class. So to you fellow southern fishing lady, I raise my Waterford crystal tea glass to a damn good catch! (Waterford: that’s what us "redneck" southerners drink out of) :-)
