ENGLEWOOD, Fla. - Three Charlotte County fishermen were cited last week after a Marine Patrol unit says they were in possession of twice the legal limit of sharks.

The limit in Florida for coastal sharks is one shark per person on the boat.

According to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office,  on August 15th, the Marine Patrol Unit was patrolling the area of the Placida boat ramp near the Boca Grande Causeway when they encountered three men in the process of loading their boat onto their trailer.

The deputies asked them if they had caught anything that they had kept. The men said they had not, but gave deputies permission to check their coolers and live well. When the deputies checked the cooler, they found six small Black Tip Sharks, all measuring between 20 and 30 inches long.

72-year-old Dale L. Money and 33-year-old James D. Money, both of Port Charlotte, and 33-year-old Victor T. Glynn Jr. of Oklahoma were all  issued a Notice to Appear in court for violation of being over the bag limit.

Three of the sharks were seized and destroyed.
