Late last week, Mynews13.com posted an article that has the potential to open a pretty serious can of worms (or maybe mackerel in this case) regarding the rights of shark fishermen in Florida. If you follow shark attack news at all, you may already know that the number of them occuring in Florida is slightly above average this year. In Brevard County, there have already been five bites this summer. Now, shark attacks in Florida are not incredibly uncommon, but Melbourne Beach Mayor Jim Simmons is proposing that land-based shark fishermen, some of which use chum, are to blame for the bump in attacks. Simmons' resolution is to ban land-based shark fishing entirely.
