As the search for four missing fishermen whose boat sank off the New Jersey coast continues, we look into the dangers of fishing.

The search for four missing fishermen whose boat sank off the New Jersey coast has entered its second day with no sign of the men.

Two of the missing men are from Pamlico County.

The bodies of two other family members were found Tuesday.

The coast guard says they recovered the Lady Mary's life raft and emergency radio beacon Tuesday.

Many have called commercial fishing one of the most dangerous professions in the world.

WITN caught up with a charter boat fisherman, which is different than commercial fishing, but can still encounter danger in Pamlico County. He says the waters can get rough, and he's trying to keep anglers closer to shore by expanding an artificial reef.
