Mom sent this today. Let's not swim in Ocean Shores. OK? While commercial fishing off Ocean Shores, Washington 'Dawn Raider' found this Great White shark swimming along side the vessel. Wow! The shark weighed 1035 pounds and it took over one hour to pull her in. We really enjoy going to Ocean Shores about a hour away from here.
