It’s that time of year, where we swim in the shark’s house. The good part about this is that it’s on Long Island, so it’s not super close to the Jersey Shore. Although sharks are fast so they could be in Wildwood before we know it!
The first sighting was reported around 10 a.m. at Lido West Beach. Lifeguard Logan Fitzgerald said he was paddling on a surfboard when he saw the maneater — thought to be between eight and 10 feet long — come out of the water.
“It came out of the water, spun around,” he said. “Just didn’t look like a dolphin. Definitely a shark.”
The second sighting was reported around 3 p.m. It’s not clear if it was the same shark.
