Yes, we're aware of sharks in the water

Watch as someone reels-in a huge great white shark off of the coast in Pensacola, FL. Like some of you, I too enjoy the beaches and water of Florida, but this should remind you of some of the dangers lurking.

A fisherman reportedly from Idaho was fishing at Big John’s Shark Fishing Adventures when he reeled in the shark.

By law, the fisherman, who was shocked to even catch such, had to release the shark back into the water.

If you're wondering, great whites aren't often seen or even caught along the gulf coast of Florida, but they are out there.

So, if you're going to be visiting the gorgeous gulf coast in the months ahead, please be safe while out in the water. Yes, the water is their natural habitat and we're often in it, but that doesn't mean you can't safely enjoy the refreshing waters.
