Are You Man Enough Shark Challenge Still Promotes Killing of Sharks

Last week we heard about a shark fishing tournament in Fort Myers called the "Are You Man Enough Challenge"

Due to public outcry the organizers were forced to change the format of the tournament to 100% catch and release.

A BIG thank you goes to Lee County Commissioner Ray Judah of district 3 who was instrumental in spearheading this movement.

However the website for the tournament still promotes the fact that sharks can be landed and brought back to the docks.

The organizers of this event must now change their audio advertisement on their website and any other advetising materials that publicize or promote the landing and killing of sharks.
