Five Ways to Best Avoid Shark Encounters

1)  Don’t swim at sunrise or sunset, or at night

2)  Don’t swim near areas of steep drop-offs

3)  Don’t swim near people who are fishing – especially those fishing with bait

4)  Don’t wear your bait – if wade fishing, keep your bait on shore

5)  Leave your shiny jewelry at home and swim with others
