Shark Fishing Anna Maria Island

Sharks have fascinated me my entire life. In fact, before moving to Anna Maria Island, I remember as a kid being terrified of taking a bath out of fear that a shark would somehow manage to swim from the ocean, to Ohio, up the drain, and right into the bath tub before devouring me whole; and it seems I'm not alone given the raging popularity of Shark Week on the Discovery channel (okay, you're right, I probably was alone in the bathtub fear). That fascination isn't just unique to Americans though, as I learned this past week.
