Fish expert claims UK is home to 1,000lb great white sharks

Oct 12, 2010 | River Reports, Uncategorized

There are Great White sharks swimming and feeding in British waters today. That is the ominous opinion of respected shark angler Steve Mills that could see bathers running for the beach and UK anglers tackling up to tame the specimens,

which Steve believes could exceed 1,000lb in weight. With its fearsome reputation, razor-sharp teeth and massive weight, the Great White shark has always been one of the ultimate targets for extreme game anglers who travel the globe in search of the killer fish. But if what Steve, the current holder of the British mako shark record, says is true, British anglers could well find themselves tangling with the ‘white death’ without the need of a passport.
