Sorry to hit you with another video, but it’s a short one, and it sums up the theory of “you should have been here yesterday” perfectly. Last Sunday, I went offshore with my dad in search of a little shark action. All we got were bluefish. Then today, while perusing one of my favorite local Internet message boards, I find a post with this video therein.

This was filmed last Saturday in the EXACT SAME SPOT I WAS FISHING! Not five miles away, not one, right there. It’s questionable whether this is a great white or a basking shark. And in either case, I wouldn’t have been able to catch it, but just to be that close and see such a thing would have been worth the trip.

Are you more often “there yesterday,” or more often hearing about how you should have been?
