Should shark fishing on Florida beaches be restricted?

The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission is asking for comments on shore-based shark fishing regulations during an open public workshop meeting

on Monday, August 27 6pm at the Hilton Melbourne Rialto Hotel. WFIT spoke to Jim Simmons, mayor of Melbourne Beach, lifelong surfer and ocean lover

about how he brought this issue to the FWC commission to ask for common sense regulations.
