April fishing information

As of the middle of April, the Tarpon have started to move into the St. Lucie River in numbers.  When and where is what Tarpon fishing is all about.  The 15th of April they showed up in great numbers, 20-50 pound fish at the Roosevelt Bridge at night and went on a feeding frenzy.  Look for more of this action in the coming months.

Chief Brody Violates Amity’s No-Kill Policy

As the boat sinks, Quint slides down the slippery deck into the shark’s mouth and is eaten alive. Brody retreats to the boat’s partly submerged cabin. When the shark attacks him there, he shoves a pressurized scuba tank into the shark’s mouth, then takes Quint’s rifle and climbs the Orca’s mast. Brody begins shooting at the scuba tank wedged in the shark’s mouth, causing it to explode and blow the shark to pieces.
