    Default 'Jaws' site on alert after alleged shark sighting

    Is this real or a hoax being pulled by someone? Who knows....


    'Jaws' site on alert after alleged shark sighting

    EDGARTOWN, Massachusetts (AP) -- The island where "Jaws" was filmed had a real-life shark scare Thursday, when an unconfirmed sighting of a great white forced the closure of two beaches.

    South Beach on Martha's Vineyard was closed for a short time, and swimmers were kept out of the water at State Beach in Edgartown, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation said.

    A plane was dispatched to try to confirm the sighting, but no shark was spotted, said Lisa Capone, a spokeswoman for the state Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs.

    In 1974, Steven Spielberg chose Martha's Vineyard for filming the movie version of "Jaws," depicting a series of deadly great white attacks in the fictional community of Amity.

    Shark attacks are extremely rare in waters off New England, but great whites have been known to occasionally prowl in the region.

    My bullshit-o-meter is ringing off the hook here... Sharks usually do not frequent these areas. Plus shallow waters are not generally shark friendly.

    In 2004, a great white was entrapped for two weeks in a salt pond not far from the island, giving Skomal and other researchers a rare opportunity to study the animal. "That was a telling sign for us that the animals are here," Skomal said.

    Last year, great white sharks were believed to be feeding on the local seals. Other local sightings have been reported over the years, which Skomal attributed to a greater awareness, perhaps a fascination, with the animal. But he stressed that the greater number of reports does not necessarily translate into an influx of sharks.

    I saw a "making of Jaws" show, or something like that. It was filmed at Martha's Vineyard and at the studio. I think they did all of the boat scenes at the studio.

    heh...around here it goes like this:

    Law Enforcement Officer: Hello, can I help you?

    Caller: Yes, I'm calling to report a 18-foot long Great White shark was just off Lover's Point.

    LEO: Okay....AND?

    Caller: Well, aren't you going to do something?

    LEO: Like what?

    Caller: Put signs up on the beach?

    LEO: Why would we do that? Sharks can't read. Is there anything else?

    Caller: So you're not going to do anyting?

    LEO: Has the shark attacked anybody?

    Caller: No

    LEO: It's probably not going to either. If he attacks someone, call us back. Have a nice day.

    Certain scenes were filmed there (mostly pick-ups and post-production stuff), but about 90% was shot on Martha's Vineyard.

    That's not necessarily true. Most shark attacks happen in 3 feet of water close to the beach.

    Quite true. Just to our South in Volusia County it seems not more than a couple of weeks go by without someone being bit on New Smyrna Beach.

    Just Google 'sharkbite capital of the world' and you will get all kinds of info on New Smyrna.

    I go there often and many times I have seen dorsal fins breaking the water. I have seen many sharks up close scuba diving but one time I saw a HUGE fin break the water and I waited a little bit longer to go back in.

    And if I remember correctly the salt water was wreaking havoc on the operation of the metal shark. A lot of problems and delays.


    The scene where Hooper goes down in the water at night and Ben Gardners head rolls into the hole was shot in a pool in Hollywood.
