Story #7 - Another Shark Story

OK, the last one was a little dorky so here's one I think you'll like better. 

Remember the chapter in Fishing, Ghosts, and My Mother's Gray Hair on shark fishing and what we did with the shark afterward? Well I forgot one episode. Typical night on the pier doing the stupid things like swimming out the bait or just swimming while waiting for the shark to pick up the bait that you swam out. 

Warm summer nights, guys and girls making out as young teens do. Kids just being kids. South of the pier there was a luxury hotel. I don’t recall the name, but it was about ten stories, right on the beach and it had a pool. Well this particular night we thought it would be fun to put a big shark in the pool.

The one we caught was close to nine feet in length and after dragging it to the hotel and putting it in the pool it was almost dead so we had to walk it around the pool for a while to get it to swim again. 

Of course we had to stick around until morning to see what happened. What happened was a guy came out, jumped on the diving board and in mid-air saw the shark. I don’t believe he even touched the water, but we were laughing so hard we missed most of what happened.

Oh yes, we were evil. 



  1. You are an evil guy Shoreman! Nice story.

  2. that one is too much to just leave alone, you have to watch that play out for sure!
