A Toms River resident however, ended his fishing trip in Seaside Park with a little more than just a nibble on the line.
Now, I've had friends who do this type of fishing when they'd visit the shore, but I don't think they ever caught anything quite this big!
Over the past three weeks, half a dozen people have been attacked by sharks off the coast of North Carolina. That has some Garden State residents wondering if the same kind of scenario could unfold at the Jersey Shore.
Sharks attacking dolphins, or at least trying to, probably happens quite a bit and we never even know about it.
Nonetheless, a visitor to one South Jersey beach over the weekend snapped a picture which might indicate sharks are getting extra hungry.
