Thought I'd share this info in case any of you like to fish for toothy critters down south. As of July 1st you need a permit when shore-based fishing for sharks in Florida. You take an online course and then must 100% pass a test. I got mine last week. It takes around 30 minutes and is free, once you pass you're given a code and you'll need to add the permit to your fishing license online. This will need to be done annually. It's not a bad course and I learned some things that will help me identify shark species. The permit isn't required for those fishing from a boat. I think the main reason for the permits is to protect endangered species of sharks.
A few more rules that went into effect for shark fishing as of July 1st;
Non-offset, non-stainless-steel circle hooks are required when targeting or harvesting sharks when using live or dead natural bait (when fishing from shore and from a vessel).
The possession/use of a device capable of quickly cutting the leader or hook when targeting sharks is required (when fishing from shore or a vessel).
Chumming is prohibited when fishing for any species from the beach.
fever3810: Got ready to change the bearings and when I took the wheel off, the axle spindle came out too. There went my fishing trip. Glad it happened in my garage instead of on the road.

fever3810: Didn't make it to Blue Grass or Loon. I was getting ready to hook the boat up when I noticed one of the wheels looked like it was tilted. I got the jack out and raised the boat trailer. When I did, the wheel moved. Thought the wheel bearings were bad.
