Default Beach shark fishing makes beaches safer?

Nothing against catching sharks or how these guys do it. But some of this information makes me scratch my head.

ummm, okay. "where no shark fishing is allowed, there are more shark attacks." okay, to each their own I suppose. from time to time this topic comes up around here... I have no data to even discuss this, but it's pretty obvious Humans are not a preferred food source for sharks...

I have no doubt that "where no shark fishing is allowed, there are more shark attacks." I don't think that's because of shark fishing, but because shark fishing isn't allowed in more populous areas where most people swim.

That said, I don't think sharks are that much of a safety issue. Shark attacks are rare.

they arent, its just the news station trying to be relevant, trying to gain attention. Sharks are in the gulf, bays, lower rivers, they live in the water....

WEAR TV! Sometimes I think I am watching a Southpark cartoon but with real people. The advice and quotes on this story are ridiculous. Sharks raising their young? The buddy system cuts your shark attack chances in half?

Default Sharks "Raising their young?

Give me a break! Baby Sharks better get out of the way or be eaten by their momma or other sharks.

Typical unsubstantiated "facts" or simple BS, take your pick.

I think Walter Cronkite (spell ck) would probably bitch slap some of today's so called "News Reporters." They ought to be ashamed of themselves--I'm ashamed of them.

Preferred doesnt matter...an "accidental" bite still does permanent damage. Ask Jessie Arbogast...Bethany Hamilton...or Rodney Fox.

only real way to avoid contact, is to stay out of the water.... not sure where the miss communication here is?

If you can swim faster than your buddy, seems like good advice.
