Delray Beach considers new shark-fishing ban

http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/palm-beach/fl-delray-shark-fishing-20140528,0,6249013.story


Mayor Cary Glickstein said the ban would protect swimmers from encounters with large predators that wouldn't normally come close to shore.

Only way to put it....What a dummy.

    I guess Glicky plans to have police on the shore line rounding up baitfish and throwing them in jail for inciting shark predators. Who elects these politicians?

    I've been thinking of other alternatives and i think its going to be easier for everyone if we just ask sharks to not swim near shore... if you see one, ask politely. Right after i heard this story on the news they played the one below of New Smyrna where based on their shark attack rate every resident must shark fish.

    The article is misleading. I threatened Delray with a lawsuit if they did not repeal the ban (as the ban is illegal for a number of reasons). The amended shark fishing ordinance is a compromise on their part as now they will only ban shark fishing near the municipal beaches. I would rather have the ordinance repealed of course but this is a good compromise without having to file a lawsuit.

    The mayor obviously has no idea what swims near our beaches 24/7/365. Marco Island's shark fishing ban is on my agenda now.
