Due to the possibility of hooks, lines and other fishing equipment injuring swimmers or sea birds, fishing is not allowed in the Atlantic Ocean from the beach. The other reason is that bait and shiny fishing equipment could attract larger sea species closer to shore posing a danger to anyone swimming in the area.
The Code Compliance Department enforces Section 108-4 of the City’s Code of Ordinances that indicates the following:
Except in designated areas, no person shall fish in the Atlantic Ocean by use of hook and line, seine, trap, spear gig or other device.
