The true morons are the people who tried to flagelate their self-grandizing...

Let's keep it simple...

a) people fish... clearly in this case it's recreational relaxation... not purposeful shark hunting like in Jaws... note lack of chumming... not even pliars... catching a shark of that size in delray while not an uncommon event... it not a common event either... sharks are more likely found near inlets... e.g. boynton beach pier a little further north... and that's where regular fishermen congregate

b) the hapless guy in this event was trying to help the fish by removing the hook... he is not the fisherman... poor judgement yes... mean... absolutely not... he risked injury because he probably know that a shark drowns on land like a person in the water... timing and concern for the fish got the better of judgement...

The point is that you shouldn't fish without the proper tools... as it is dangerous to you as well as a fish... the right pliar and technigue minimize the damage and get the fish back in the water quickly as possible...

i was at a beach near where the vid was shot and i heard that the guy who got bit wasnt the one who caught it he was just trying to help and if he waited for pliers the shark might have died.
