Mary Lee still moving

This map from Ocearch.org's Shark Tracker website shows Mary Lee's recent movements off the coast of South Carolina.

Mary Lee pinged a few times today. The roving great white shark is still headed north and moving away from Charleston waters.

She last pinged about 9 a.m. in the ocean off Bulls Bay, about halfway between Isle of Palms and McClellanville.

The roving, 16-foot-long, 3.456-pound shark has captured the imagination of countless people in the Lowcountry and along the East Coast since she was tagged last summer by Ocearch researchers in the waters off New England.

She arrived in the waters off the Southeast coast along with other winter migrating fish and has been swimming back and forth from North Carolina to Florida. She was off the Charleston jetties on Monday.

Food fish moving out the inlets for the winter make those waters a feast.
