Three men were cited last week for having more than the legal limit of sharks on board their boat.
The Charlotte County Marine Patrol Unit was near the Placida boat ramp near the Boca Grande Causeway when they encountered 27-year old Dale Money, 72-year old James Money and 33-year old Victor Glynn Jr. They were loading their boat onto their trailer, and deputies asked if they’d caught anything they were keeping. They said no, and gave deputies permission to look. Deputies found six small Black Tip Sharks. The limit in Florida for coastal sharks is one shark per person on the boat.
