According to this, they may have thought you were a large predator about to leave them some scraps :lol:

  Thanks Chief. I wish I had known this at the time. It would have saved me a nice pair of swimming trunks.

I had one nibble a fin when I was drift diving on a wreck off of Palm Beach once...it was a freighter that a U-Boat nailed right on the edge of the Gulf Stream, and the current was a *****.  Damned shark stayed right with me, and just kept nibbling at my fin.  Worst dive ever.


Man that's close. I hate having to fight a current like that. To have to contend with a nibbling bull shark on top of that would probably make me change my hobby to cribbage.

Is this the wreck...The Baja California?
