Exclamation All fishing banned @ these nc public beaches

http://www.carolinacoastonline.com/n...17009b922.html

All types of fishing is now banned in 10 different places on emerald isle.

Pine Knoll Shores says it will ban all fishing with 200 yards of 10 popular beach access locations in the town, effective Monday.

The locations in Pine Knoll Shores are: Ocean Park, Iron Steam public beach access, Memorial Park public beach access, Hammer Park access, two public accesses at Beacons Reach, the Knollwood public beach access, as well as the lodges at The Atlantis, The Seahawk, and The Windjammer.

While fishing in the state is regulated by the Division of Marine Fisheries, they believe the towns are taking actions for "public safety purposes" so no action is being taken at the time concerning legality issues.

Indian Beach officials said they are monitoring what is happening with shark bites, but they are not ready to make any changes in their town ordinances yet. Atlantic Beach says it has not made any changes either.

ya know, because it's the fishermen attracting the sharks inshore. Not the fact that all their food is along the shore.

Fishing has been limited for a number of years now on Hatteras due to "piping plovers"(a bird) nesting and turtle nests. Now this ?????? I can remember when I first went to Kitty Hawk circa 1970, the shark fishermen would come to,the beach at dark. Rule was catch 'EM, get them out of sight by dawn.

Unfortunately another story will read:
The plaintiffs attorney reasoned, they moved the fisherman 100 yards east or west of the swimming area, thus the state acknowledges the inherent danger fishing posed to innocent swimmers. They should have banned fish from the beach. My client was mislead, by the states actions, into thinking the area was now free of shark danger.

Fortunately shark bites are considered an "Act of God" so I don't think any amount of warning or lack thereof would constitute a breach of duty or negligence.

or Plaintiffs Attorney files suit against fisherman in NC for using lead weights, a known carcinogen which caused directly Plaintiffs loss of blood flow to Plaintiffs sexual organ therefore causing said Plaintiff to suffer needless embarassment while cavorting with the opposite sex. The City may also be culpable for not posting Notice to Swimmers that lead may cause erectile dysfunction when swimming in areas that are frequented by fisherman.

Are NC beaches so small that this is even an issue? In my neck of the woods lifeguards don't come on duty until 9am and don't bug us until close to 10, if I feel like keeping it going I'm willing drag my butt a little further down the shoreline. I'll admit it's a shame to spend time or money on this thinking it will decrease shark activity, just a show for the uneducated masses. Stupid? Yes, but is it really a big deal?

No more people beach fishing now days than years past...but a little history of the past few years. The omega menhaden boats were forced to stop harvest of menhaden in NC due to a petition caused by the lack of fish or should I say bluefin tuna.... this year there's more bait than I've seen in my 16 years of fishing the Brunswick area now that the menhaden boats moved north....now with more available bait there's obviously more predators...just not what the petitioners wanted sharks instead of...KINGS and BLUEFIN....which benefit the tournaments and the fall Bluefin moneys.....
Just my .2

No, but plenty of freaking nets. Money and powers to be couldn't save the lonely shark fisherman. Nets are invincible though.

Your good Jack, you actually have to catch fish for it to be a violation of the law...

Uhhh, when the law reads 'no fishing', doesn't catching becomes irrelevant ...

At least get the story right. EI has banned shark fishing and chumming until 9/15.

Pine Knoll shores has banned fishing in certain parts.

Kinda silly, to ban fishing, but the town of Pine Knoll Shores is run by a wacky bunch of people that do crap like this all the time.
