Great white shark keeps trucking on after Isle of Palms appearance
Mary Lee, the large great white shark that lurked off the Lowcountry last weekend, continued her migration south today.
By late afternoon, the 16-foot long, nearly two-ton predator swam in the ocean off St. Catherine’s Sound in mid-Georgia, about 40 miles south of her location off the Savannah River on Monday.
The female shark is thought to be moving to winter feeding and possibly pupping grounds of Florida.
The shark was off Isle of Palms before apparently moving into Charleston Harbor on Sunday. At least one boater reported seeing it.
A satellite signal Sunday reported Mary Lee to be in the marsh along Daniel Island, but researchers with Ocearch, the sportsmans group tracking her, said that signal almost certainly wasn’t accurate.
