I had a damn blacktip spin around and cut me when I dropped it back in the water one time. It was only about 18 inches long and I had a firm grip in front of the dorsal. Got the hook out with a long set of pliers. I dropped it in the water, felt nothing, then saw blood. It wasn't bad at all, but I still don't know how it accomplished that feat.

We talked to a guy who took the float plane tour out to the Dry Tortugas. He said that the number of sharks in close to the beach was astounding and that no one who flies in to the island goes swimming. We'd just finished our snorkeling at the time.
