Avoid the lure of the "Square Grouper"

What should you do if you come across one of those bales of white powder (white lobster) when fishing?  Well you probably shouldn't try to sell it. reports that a Florida fisherman ran across a floating bale of cocaine and decided to sell it. He was recently convicted and could be sentenced to life in prison.

Writing to the News Herald of Panama City, Breeding warned against the life-changing choice he made in attempting to sell the cocaine that he discovered whilst fishing about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of Panama City last January....

"I was working as a long line boat captain out of Panama City when I found a package containing 20 kilos of cocaine," he added. "I do not know where the drugs came from and haven't ever been involved in the drug trade before. I was just a hard-working, young commercial fisherman."
