    Hi all

    It's just irresponsible hooliganism and it should be illegal. No one should fish that way. It just kills everything within a certain radius and bottom dwelling animals too. Imagine how few fish there would be if everybody used this method when they wanted a couple of fish for dinner.

    Mike, it is illegal to fish with a hand grenade or explosives in all 50 states. And possession of a live hand grenade or even dynamite is very difficult. It is a joke Mike. People years ago have used dynamite to stun fish, but it was illegal even then. I am not saying it was or even is not done, but it is certainly not an accepted practice in our country. What soldiers do in wartime to feed themselves is not Germain to what ordinary citizens do to catch fish Now as for Russian occupiers in eastern Europe, well that is a different kettle of fish.

    Grenades depending on type and who made them generally have a delay of 4 to 6 seconds. The guy is trying to cook off the grenade by holding it for a few seconds before dropping it inorder to get it to go off at a shallower depth.

    Why use grenades when telephoning is a lot less dangerous and doesn't make all that noise?

    Thank you Jim. I guess he miscalculated, go figure.

    I guess he did! Another second and he would have transformed himself from fisherman to fishbait!

    It's likely he died anyway. It depends on if the boat caught enough shrapnel to protect him, and what kind of grenade it was, but the kill radius of an antipersonnel grenade is about 10'. If it was a police flashbang, he just got messed up but probably survived if he was conscious enough to swim when the concussion threw him out of the boat.
