If you fish in waters that are home to stingrays you understand DWOM. It's a symbol just like the rattlesnake that Ben Franklin once used and was later placed on a flag by Col. Gadsden. Stingrays are generally harmless unless you step on them. There have been instances of unprovoked attacks but it's rare unless you're blocking their exit. Sometimes its best to leave some things alone, including people. If your working on your ballroom dance moves check out the stingray shuffle.
Hobo Outdoor Co. tidbit: Barracuda, Bonita, Jack Crevalle, Amberjack and Mullet have all been known as great shark bait. Did you know that stingrays also make excellent shark bait? Just don't end up wearing a stingray barb when you're trying to catch bait. Stingray barbs pack a punch and will cost you a trip to the ER and possibly worse.
