Shrimp fishing crews fired automatic weapons and rammed each other's boats in the Gulf of Mexico amid tension between longtime area fishermen and Vietnamese newcomers. No injuries were reported. The shooting stopped when Coast Guard helicopters and boats arrived, authorities said. Officials had reported one boat sinking because of the ramming, but they said it was out of danger. Officials said it was too early to place blame for the confrontation on the immigrants or the longtime residents.

Picture a one-inch-thick fishing line with hooks on 9 1/2-foot leaders spaced 20 feet apart. Bait the hooks with mackerel or saury, run the line out 30 or 40 miles, then go back to the front end, reel it in and see what you have caught. Marlin, swordfish, tuna, yellowtail, shark--you name it. This method of fishing is highly efficient and totally indiscriminate. Sport and commercial fishermen fear it would devastate big game saltwater fishing off Southern California.
