  1. Nothing to be shocked about…
    Bullsharks live in both Salt AND Freshwater.
    Also ALL rivers lead to the Ocean, so there really is Nothing to be shocked about here…

  2. Read up on the Matawan Creek Shark Attacks in NJ. This should be common knowledge by now not news.

  3. Lol…."A bite from these shark would be rare"??.. Really? The bull shark happens to be the deadliest and most aggressive shark worldwide. Google Reunion Island, Second Beach (SA), and Recife (Brazil). Reunion Island has imposed a swimming ban since 2013 because of a spate of fatal bull shark attacks. By the way, the largest bull shark ever caught on rod and reel was in the Breede River in South Africa – these sharks thrive in fresh water.

  10. The bull shark is most likely going to bite humans right next to the tiger shark.

  12. The way that kid says "it's awesome" with that look on his face – LOL. Very Napoleon Dynamite-ish.

  13. You can fish sharks sure no problem it’s just a shark just make sure you limit it to “one shark per day….”

  14. So take the "Pups"out and let them suffocate….Nice.Just so you can put your stupid face on FB or Twitter….How Altruistic of you…

  15. I live in Naples FL, there's a canal in my neighborhood like 15 miles from the ocean and I catch small bullsharks and black tips in the canal all year. Of course I don't hurt them and release them immediately but I never knew black tips went this far inland till I caught my first one years ago.

  16. Nice added touch of all the videos/photos of people murdering the baby sharks. 🙄

  17. Dumbest shit I’ve heard. “You need a license and there is a limit of one shark per person” k, lemme just turn the knob on my fishing rod from shark to bass.

  19. One of the most infamous shark attack cases in America happened in a river in New Jersey from a bull shark centuries ago…

  20. Bull Sharks are known to live in fresh water and are found in the Mississippi River in Minnesota. This is not big or new news.

    HAH Bish idc if I get eaten by a shark momma wants a beach day having ocean fun!!

  24. I've seen some 4-5 footers all the way up to the Hillsborough bridge. Not only do they have pups in there but they chase the large schools of Jack crevalle that come in and out daily. Before the Riverwalk came around I would downtown a lot and would see them often.

  25. Does anyone not watch Shark Week? It's common knowledge bull sharks swim far upstream in rivers. Get a bigger boat and while you're at it, get a bigger TV! 🙂

  26. 1:25 that’s a lie bull shark bites are more common than any other shark. Try again lady
