...is this cool or what??
« on: September 26, 2011, 12:46:11 PM »

ok, so yesterday me and the neighborhood crew were surfingout back.  Not big, but fun for what it was.  I caught a wave and as I finished it I noticed this guy in a little rowboat paddling out through the lineup.  I started paddling back out as well.  Then I noticed he was pulling a fishing line for someone from shore out through our lineup.  with live bait.  for shark fishing.  I wasn't even sure if I saw the line or not, so I asked him if that's what he was doin and he said yep and kept goin.  I was kinda mad that he had to do this right there, but it's a big ocean so I paddled away.

then today when I was walking back up the beach from my wonky drift session to paradise I smelt something funny...and right in the same spot where the guy was fishing yesterday on the sand was a big dead shark head. 

was this really necessary???  some people piss me off.  >:(

yep, so I guess it wasn't a total massacre.

I get it.  people fish.  some people fish for sharks.  but i just don't get why they had to leave the carcass up by the dunes.  or why they had to do this in the middle of where we were surfing, that bothers me.

big dead shark head.

"Big dead shark head" is my new band name after "cone of uncertainty". haha

They couldve at least tossed it out for other fish to feed on!

Not cool at all IMO.  Shark fishing from the beach in an area where people surf and swim is a d-bag move.  Leaving a big dead shark head on the beach to stink up the place is just rude and inconsiderate...not to mention bad mojo.

what i don't understand is fishing from the shore to begin with
but only when people are around....

after not doing it since middle school, i would love to get back
into fishing again but not to where i put others in danger by
fishing for shark.... what the hell is wrong with people?

if someone is fishing for shark and someone gets bit, can the person
that was injured by a shark turn around and sue the shark fisherman
for neglecting to keep others around him safe?

I think that would be a lost cause. Swimming the in ocean is inherently dangerous, especially on the volusia / brevard coastline. You couldnt convince a jury otherwise.

You could try to sue the shark for negligent biting,
but good luck getting a lawyer to help.
They were all in the same fraternity together.
