    Updated:

    CENTRAL FLORIDA - Shark experts are warning beachgoers that shark activity is high this time of year.

    Experts said as the temperature cools, bait fish tend to swim closer to shore. They said sharks follow to feed on the smaller fish.

    In just the last week, there have been three reported shark bites: one in Brevard and two in Volusia County.

    Officials said the number of shark bites so far is not more than normal.

    They said it's on track with the annual average. In Volusia County, the average is 10.
