There is always a bigger fish.

Here is a pic of a 550 pound Mako a guy caught fishing and as he reeled it in an unseen larger shark bit the entire body off in one bite, leaving only the head for the fisherman. While there is always a bigger fish, that is just downright scary. Happy diving!

There was a famous line in a movie " I think we are going to need a bigger boat". I know of a charter that had caught a 11' leopard shark off the NJ coast in the 90s. It was too big to land in the 6 pack boat so they dragged it behind the boat across the mouth of the Delaware Bay. Till it was eaten whole on them, like this photo the only thing left was part of the snout. They were able to catch the attack on film. Little fish we are in a big pond.
