Hit In The Hat With A Fish

Bucket Hats from Hartford York Hats - Men's Pincord Bucket - The Cristopher from WigensFor those of you out on Florida’s Suwannee River this Independence Day, take care. “The season of ‘sturgeon strikes‘ — law enforcement’s term for collisions between the state’s largest freshwater fish and hapless boaters — [is] already well under way.”

According to a New York Times article (Summertime. Fish Jumping. That’s Trouble.), the otherwise harmless fish make for “very impressive injuries” when their leaps coincide with fast-moving people in boats or on jet skis. Doctors in the area have seen shattered legs and slashed throats among the injuries.

Seen from the safety of the riverbanks, however, jumping sturgeon (which can grow to eight feet long and weigh upwards of 200 lbs) can be a great form of entertainment.

Enjoy the fireworks!
