• Is Block Island “At the Center Of The Worst Shark Territory In the Entire World?



“In early summer of 1960, after chumming with chunks of a 3,000-pound blackfish whale he had brought back to shore the day before, Mundus caught a great white shark just four miles off the Amagansett beach, right next to Montauk.

"He threw four harpoons in the course of an hour, with the shark succumbing after towing four barrels through the water.

”The 3,000-pound shark was displayed in Montauk, attracting the public, as well as reporters.

”Sound vaguely like a movie plot?”
