Monkeyfishing...aka "electrocuting stupid catfish is fun"
These two idiots were caught illegally monkeyfishing in Florida. Monkeyfishing is apparently sending a shock through the water that causes the fish to all come to the surface where you then scoop them up...the best part about this story, besides the word monkeyfishing of course, is that these two guys are actually named Leo and Luther Bright. As a person who spent several years in Florida between college and the military I can just see these yahoos standing out in a swamp with overalls on laughing with glee as they scoop up some traumatized nasty catfish. Once again, Carl Hiaasen would be proud (don't judge him by Strip Tease...his books are wonderful and capture the absolute ridiculousness of South Florida perfectly).
