Great Whites Return to Cape Cod
July 9, 2011
CapeCodOnline: The first great white of the season was spotted a tad early in May by Menemsha fisherman Jeff Lynch, who saw the 18- to 20-foot shark swimming around a whale carcass off Aquinnah (on Martha’s Vineyard).
But over the past week, the great whites have returned to Cape waters in force. There have been 3 confirmed sightings from Chatham to Truro, and an unsubstantiated sighting off Nantucket that expert Greg Skomal of the state Division of Marine Fisheries thinks will likely prove true.
