    LAFITTE, La. --

    More and more stories about sick fishermen are beginning to surface after the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.The fishermen are working out in the Gulf -- many of them all day, every day -- to clean up the spill. They said they blame their ailments on the chemicals that BP is using.

    What choice to they have?

    Every day their boats aren't working, they're losing money.

    Fish or perish.

    No. They have been hired by BP to help clean up.

    They should be wearing respirators and protective gloves. Pass it on.

    They're fishing for lawsuits.

    Pull them all off the site. In fact make it illegal for them to go out there since its so darn dangerous
