Default Great White, Mary Lee, leaves her mark in the Lowcountry

To make a relatively long story short.. there has been a tagged 16ft Great White (Mary Lee, seen in first video) patrolling the lowcountry(among other southeastern areas) since they tagged her up near Cape Cod, Mass last September.



This appearance has been the talk of the area in my part of the lowcountry(Beaufort/HHI section) and many news stations have covered it as well. I believe the tagging was posted here at least once but I don't recall. At any rate, Mary Lee made her return back to the Saint Helena Sound recently(see map below) and, while before people were freaked out, until now no evidence has come to light as to her presence outside of the tracker and a few stories from fishermen.




(pic taken by Mark Gray)

Apparently this dolphin washed up in front of the Hunting Island Lighthouse this morning, causing the locals to take a collective double-take.

More accurately:





Of course, it doesn't mean too much, in my opinion, because she's been(presumably) in the area this time of year for some time now. It's just an impressive piece of evidence of the 3,500lb great white. While there will be many in the area who will be ill at ease about it, I've heard stories of great white's being in the area(at least off the coast) for some time now, so it's not a big deal to me. In my experience, most fishermen/captains will say that people would be shocked if they knew what was patrolling the waters of our coast.

16ft 3500 lbs.
That ping is on top of my favorite fishing hole just off otter island. I've had some monster hits there and landed some nice fish. Its prime for shark, huge spottail, tarpon and cobia (in season).
I honestly wouldn't know what to do if I was fishing there and she surfaced next to the boat. Might would be chief Brody all over again.

Hmmm wonder where that hole is... lol

We've got a place on the creek at Edisto and we head out that way every once in a while.

whoops.. I put 1600lbs because I was thinking 16ft

Yeah.. I kayak near Edisto and Hunting Island when I get the chance and I think if I saw her(even just a silhouette) I might just have a heart attack.

Yeah, I almost forgot you are very familiar with Edisto too.

Come out big bay creek and go back up south edisto, take fenwick cut to ashepoo river and go left. That will take you right to it. Kinda have to watch out for some shallow spots in the area but I will let you figure those out

Maybe she wasn't the cause after all?

I'll do some digging to see if there was any followup

**Edit**

So far, I've found that the photo was taken at Folly and not Hunting Island

Something bit that dolphin in half man. It may have died from a disease, but something still took half as lunch.
