It was less than 20 miles or so from the coast. It could happen.

I saw a 4' shark at a ramp in Canyon lake. Really irritates me that some one can take from a resource and then just throw it away.

Bull Sharks will migrate into freshwater.

Few years ago some guys caught a Bull Shark in St. Louis on the Mississippi. As stated above, Bull Sharks can live and travel in freshwater for a long time. I know in Australia or Africa, I believe, it is common for shark attacks several miles up river by bull sharks. Several documentaries on the subject. Article said it was obviously dumped there due to tire tracks and drag marks.

Bull sharks travel up any river that feeds into ocean. Watch shark week. They show a diagram where they've been caught or spotted all over inland US. No not lake Lewisville. Also seems like an episode of River Monsters talked about it.

Just give it a few days and some guy that has been fishing for 3 months will upload a YouTube video on proper tackle selection and the "ultimate technique" for catching inland sharks. That will settle this for sure.
