Deadliest catch?

Ran across this old Message Board post about the Imperial Beach Pier.

at the Imperial Beach Pier on Wednesday. Apparently the bomb squad came out and disarmed it. Now that's a catch and I'm surprised no one got hurt. BTW, how can you have a "live" hand grenade in the ocean? Wouldn't they degrade? Of course I don't know how long it was there. AND, how did it get there?

THIS should be “The Deadliest Catch”

I believe there were a couple of earlier accounts too. I remember that one though. Two weeks after, I think I caught a bag of rocks but I didn’t want to bring it onto the pier. So, I cut it loose.
