In a related incident, a reader says, "I'm on active duty in the US Coast Guard, and I was stationed In Destin, Florida in 1995. On routine patrol, I noticed a lady standing in four feet of water, 75 feet from the beach, waving baitfish around. I thought she was feeding the dolphins, which is illegal in Florida, so I pulled up alongside her to advise her of the infraction. I looked down, and realized that the tails on these creatures were moving side-to-side, as opposed to up-and-down like a dolphin. Also, none were coming up for air. This misguided lady was feeding a school of sharks! When she realized she was surrounded by ten sharks, she turned white as a ghost, and jumped into my boat before I knew what had happened! The guys back at the station got a good laugh out of that one. By the way, I was also called out on the case above, called, Swimming With Dolphins.
