I told them I had never done that, but shark wrangling in the Florida Keys is probably a whole lot warmer! And, you can drink beer.
Texans John Belyeu, Philip Lee, Eddie Lee, Leon Batchelor and Pennsy Bill Hicks spent the afternoon in the flat calm, crystal clean waters of Florida Bay. The only thing disturbing the peaceful setting was the lemon sharks circling the boat.
Today, the fish were very energetic and gave us a great show. Each of the guys got to land at least one for a total of seven lemons released at the boat – all six or seven feet in length!
