National Fisherman

A fight over a fishing spot between two brothers landed one on the hook with law enforcement and left the other with a damaged boat and sprained thumb, according to a report.

Commercial fisherman Lawrence Lamee Jr., 52, was fishing for flounder about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at Blue Hole in Oak Hill when his brother, also a commercial fisherman, showed up at the same spot, according to a Volusia County Sheriff's Office charging affidavit. Lance Lamee, 51, asked his brother if he was going to fish the frontside or backside of the location, to which Lawrence replied "all of it" and that Lance wouldn't be messing with him anymore.

Lance, of Edgewater, again asked his brother where he would be fishing, and Lawrence, of New Smyrna Beach, gave him the same answer, but this time while driving his boat toward Lance's and intentionally ramming it, according to the report. Lance called 9-1-1 and tried to flee but Lawrence's boat was faster.

Lawrence rammed his brother's boat a second time but fell into the water after hitting a wake, according to the report. Lawrence climbed back in and rammed Lance's boat a third time, disabling it.
