What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Fishing Accidents

The waters off of Jacksonville are filled with a wide variety of fish that many people love to catch for sport or to eat. Fishing, while an enjoyable pastime, does carry some risks with it.

One of the biggest risks from fishing is the fishing hook. When a person casts their line, there is a chance that the hook could become lodged in another person’s body that is on the boat or pier from where people are fishing. This hook could cause serious injuries, depending on the location that it catches on a person.

On deep sea fishing expeditions, the risks of being caught by a fishing hook increase exponentially. This is because when a person is on a boat, there is less room for avoiding fishing hooks as they are being expertly cast out over the water in hopes of catching a huge trophy fish.

Another problem with fishing boats is that all of the risks of being on a boat in general now become an issue, in addition to the risks from fishing. The chances of the boat sinking are there, as well as the risks of slipping on wet decks and hurting oneself. In rough seas, there is also a chance that a person can be thrown overboard due to rough or choppy waters.

Overall, while very relaxing most of the time, fishing can pose some significant threats to a person’s health.
