Another shark sighting has been reported in San Luis Obispo County waters.

The latest reportedly happened at around noon Monday.

Peter May tells KSBY he and his brother, Mamba, were kayak fishing out of marine terrace in Cambria and were about a mile offshore when a shark started circling their kayaks.

May estimates the shark was between 10-12 feet long.

This is at least the fourth reported shark sighting between Morro Bay and Cambria since Aug. 7; however, Morro Bay Harbor Director Eric Endersby tells KSBY not all the reports have been deemed credible.

Warning signs were up along the beach in the Morro Bay area over the weekend after two reports of Great White shark sightings on Friday.

Those warnings have since expired.
