To the jerk fisherman who leaves his old baited hooks 10 feet from a trash can: Thanks to you my morning beach time with my dog turned into emergency vet time because he got a huge hook stuck in his face. Those cans on the beach are intended for more then just Heineken bottles. Is it laziness, ignorance or stupidity that makes you just toss your fishing waste on the beach literally five steps from a trash can? Next time another could get injured, or a kid could get his foot stuck. Of course, in a perfect world, your ass would get the hook, but we’re probably not that lucky.
