even if it was a great white which it wasn't then the chances of being attacked are very minimal, they don't like humans for dinner, usually .
ive spent the last few days surfing in north devon and the sea was full of surfers and even when a shark is spotted (which is rare) it doesn't stop us from getting out there, its not sharks you need to be wary of its certain people

The Sun has a great record of correct fish ID. Apparently this is a 10lb bass.

Don't knock mullet-if you can catch one somewhere sandy without a sewer outfall they taste better than bass.

That's IF...

There are loads of them in Burry Port Harbour and they are pretty big. Don't know if it was a mullet but I was there one evening and a fish jumped out of the water and "ran" across the harbour on it's tail - would never have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes!!!

I was at a birthday party on Kennack Sands on the Lizard a few days back, lovely day the beach was packed with lots of emits enjoying paddling and swimming in the sea.

Next thing I know everyone is running out of the water like a scene from Jaws, complete pandemonium, why?

Because there was a small Basking Shark about 40 Meters off shore enjoying a good feed...

I had a good laugh...

Took them a while to get back in...
