I've visited Naples Pier several times and each time something different. On every occasion we've seen dolphins playing undisturbed and free. Fishermen a plenty, and catches frequent. On our last visit they were catching pelicans, cormorants, a gull and a dolphin but precious few fish!! The birds were treated gently and well, each checked over before being released. The dolphin had the last laugh, the fishermans line ran out and everyone shouted "Dolphin". Much excitement ensued with instructions being yelled loudly to ensure his safety. From the outset it was clear the dolphin was not a trophy. Suddenly the line went slack, the dolphin flipped his tail, cleared the water and swam off. The fisherman realed in his line to reveal a very neatly severed, large fish head on his hook, hook still firmly attached!! The dolphin had stolen his catch!! One for the dolphin!!! They reckoned it had been a very large fish! There was a lovely senior lady, appeared to be the matriarch of the fishermen, who ensured each fish caught met the statuary size and was treated respectfully, but after all, fishing is a sport and most are fishing to eat later.
