Last summer a friend and I were coming back into the mouth of the N. River when we saw a boat dragging something out of the mouth. I thought it looked like a shark...but figured I was mistaken. Got back to the dock and ran into a lady who said "Should have been here last night. So and so brought in a big shark. They just dragged it out of here." We, of course, respond with "What kind". The response..."Not sure but it was big and the weird part was, it had no teeth". :mad: Never found out what it was for sure but I'm sure glad to hear that this big animal is now on the list.
