AP captured the two fishermen in this raw video, entitled "Fishing Through Hurricane Irene":
So, what up with these fishermen? Is it a) They just wanted to do something stupid to get on TV; or b) They forget to check the weather forecast; or c) They really don't mind fishing in a hurricane; or d) They are filming a reality TV pilot on how people drown.
By the way, as soon as we get a fish report from Sweet Irene's fishing fools we'll pass it on.
