Following eight shark attacks this summer, another seaside town is enacting fishing restrictions. Jared Brumbaugh has more.
Effective today, Pine Knoll Shores is banning all fishing at ten heavily used beach access location. Town Manager Brian Kramer says the plan designates a 200 yard area at each site for swimming only. He says anglers will have to move to the right or left of these restricted areas in order to fish.
"Most fishermen we think do that already out of courtesy, but we don't want to have bait in the water while folks are swimming."
