Guy that has taken me fishing a few times that guides told me he caught an 11 foot tiger shark right outside of the swimming area at Lido just north of Sarasota. Pulled their boat right through the swimming area into the shallow. Said he also caught a huge hammerhead, can’t remember how big, about 100 yds off the jetties in Venice.You can hide a pretty big shark in waist deep water. I’ve caught six foot long black tips in the gulf while people were swimming within 30-40 yards. Creeps me the hell out.
