A local fisherman got quite a suprise this week when he caught a fresh water shark in Lewisville Lake. The angler, Ima Lion, 62, Addison TX said he was trolling along the north shore when he noticed one of his poles bending. "It was bending more than I have ever seen a pole bend." Lion faught the 74 pound fresh water shark for over two hours. "It was the most exciting catch of my life. I've been fishing there here waters for all my life and never have I caught anything like this." The photo was taken with Lion's granddaughter Shebe, 6, Denton,TX.
Texas Deartment of Wildlife and Parks has now issued a warning regarding Grapevine Lake. "We are recomending no one swim or go on or in the water until we can assess the situatiin and see just how many sharks are in the water."

Lewisville Lake is postponing the anual fireworks display until the waters are deemed safe.

    whale spotted in illinois river A humpback whale was spotted near Morris IL in the Illinois River today. The sighting comes just days after 2 Great White Sharks were seen frolicking in the same area. While not impossible, it does seem unlikely. It is thought that the whale may have followed the sharks as they sometimes do in the wild. The whale would of had to travel over 1250 miles to get to this location. The Marine Biologist Association will be in town for a full investigation. Until we have answers, we are asking folks to keep their pontoons and fishing boats docked.

    two great white sharks found swimming in mississippi river near saint louis, missouri. While it is not entirely impossible, it is incredibly uncommon for salt water dwelling creatures to stay for lengthy periods of time in fresh water. However, two Great White Sharks have managed to survive the trip and make their way up the Mississippi River somehow. Believed to have started as a mating couple, the two are assumed to have swam the 920 mile journey from the mouth of the Mississippi River that is connected to the Gulf Of Mexico. Officials in Saint Louis have contacted the Missouri Conservation Department and will likely have a team in the river soon to capture the two lost sharks.
