i know this is an old post but there is definitely 100% sharks in the CC area and not just small ones, theres no reason there wouldnt be sharks in Texas. look up albert zertuche shark its a record 12.5ft 1200 lb tiger shark. my brother fishes with him at bob hall pier and they pull in sharks pretty frequently but for some reason not very many shark attacks in Texas so i wouldnt worry TOO much, but still if i was going swimming personaly id just stay away from bob hall pier and the jetties.

Even if there is no shark threat, a basic water safety rule is don't swim near jetties or breakwaters. I thought everybody in the CB knew that.

There are plenty of sharks in the coastal waters around CC. However, types of sharks that are common here are less agressive. It still doesn't matter though, as a shark is an umpredictable animal. I don't have the choice to stay out of the water as it is part of my job, but we tread in their territory very carefully and we never go out alone.
There are also plenty of alligators around CC. Also, part of my job takes place in areas of fresh water and we see them all the time. Anywhere there is fresh, standing water you may find alligators. I don't let my dog swim in ponds or lakes here. Fast moving water is generally safe, once you get away from the banks, but swiftly moving water is not a place to swim either.
I worry more about man o wars, puffer fish, jellies, stingrays, algae blooms, and chemically/ sewage polluted areas.

People need to panic and gossip over something. Your chance of being attacked by a shark in Corpus is much less then your computer exploding while reading this. Rockport'ds horseshoe-shaped beach has never had a shark attack as far as I can tell.

There are some alligators inland but no cause for alarm. Both the sharks and alligators are too busy to respond to foolish posts - go guess i have to.

Yes, but not to worry, they only hang out under the coconut palms serving as aircraft carriers for salt marsh mosquitoes.
