Here's something you fish people will like
I took a girl to the beach at around 1am just to walk around under the full moon. We were walking in about ankle-high water and she nearly trips over something, I thought it may have been a piece of driftwood. She took a step back and I could see a long mass under the moonlight.. I bent over right on top of it, and opened my cell phone to add light. I see a grey fin, gills and eyes. I'm suprised my head didn't explode and the word "SHARK" tumbled out of my mouth and I heard her running away. We must have spooked it, because it started wiggling. Naturally, I sat down on it, got behind it's pectoral fins and wrestled the 3 - 3 1/2 fish out of the water. We had a towel with us, and to protect myself from his skin, we wrapped him up in it, took some pictures, then released him. He must have been beached, so I walked him out past the sandbar and let him go and we saw him ride a wave out to sea. The scary part for me was walking in thigh-high water, in the dark, holding a shark, who was bleeding btw.
