Bad Day Fishing

US Warship Mistakenly Fires on Fishermen
They say a bad day fishing is a better than a good day at work, and the FishMax crew can certainly vouch for that (we've had our share of bad days fishing) but we've never had as bad a day as group of American fishermen whose boat was mistaken for a target by a US War Ship and fired upon!

US Media have reported that late last month the USS The Sullivans, fired upon a boat carrying a number of North Carolina men out for a day's fishing.The reports say that the comander of the navy ship that fired on the fishing boat has been relieved of his duty, but no word on whether the US Navy has bought the fishermen new underpants!

(And no, the USS The Sullivans is not named after the long running Australian TV show, but rather 5 brothers called from the Sullivan family all of whom lost their lives during the Battle of Guadalcanal on November 13, 1942)
