ul412al (12/11/2009)It also amuses me when the laws of navigation become second to the laws of trolling.
I may be mistaken but that law only refers to commercial boats MAINLY, not REC boats. The law does apply to REC boats IF they are hooked on a fish, not just trolling lures. It refers to trolling fishing GEAR. (Lures is not GEAR.)

Again, I may be wrong. I will have to look it up.



I thought the poll was about other boats cutting you off. I can see jet skiers doing it until they hit the line and a lure snags them.:letsdrink I see NO REASON a boat should cut someone off that is fishing from a pier, bridge or shore. That is just being stupid on the boaters part for being that close. IMHO.



UPDATE - Here is the RULE. It doesn't say anything about when they are HOOKED up. I will have to dig deeper on the subject. I'm going off what I was taught while in school. The instructor said that if they were hooked up ona BM or Tuna then they could be considered Restricted In thier ability to Maneuver. Don't think he said anything about RED FISH or KING FISH though. :letsdrink

<DIV align=left><H4>Rule 3</H4></DIV>
  1. <LI><DIV align=left>The term "vessel engaged in fishing" means any vessel fishing with nets, lines, trawls, or other fishing apparatus which restrict maneuverability, but does not include a vessel fishing with trolling lines or other fishing apparatus which do not restrict manageability.</DIV></LI>

Personally I give every boat a wide berth if possible.

I took out a few lines the other day. I was coming back in to Grand Lagoon State Park. The dock ramp was full of fishermen, with lines way to the middle of the ICW channel.

I approached the East dock fist and counted 6 poles in the water. The tide was dropping so the current was moving.I went to the West dock trying to miss all the lines east side lines.

Well - I took out several lines from the 8 poles on the east dock. The fishermen were not too happy.

The boat ramp now costs $6.00 to enter the park and $6.00 to launch, so it was $12.00 launch. I know that dock is not to be used for fishing. So the attitudes displayed by the fishermen, could have been replied to by a complaint to the office on my way out. But it was not.

I got their lines off the prop without too much trouble.

Many - Many years ago we were anchored up on a wreck with some other boats near by.



He comes "Jonny Troller". I can see him circling around us, yet I can also see his line. As he past us a little was away I hollered over to him to reel his line in some.



They looked at me like I had 2 heads. I hollered again. No change.



Then I hollered that I would cut his line, as the line was being drug right over top of us.



You see the line was deployed at least a 1/4mi behind the boat.



As he kept going I reached up and cut his line. I then hand lined the lure they were dragging into our boat.



Did I mention that there was a Spanish Mackerel on the lure also? The guy didn't even know he had caught a fish. DA! :banghead



They drove off for a while. Then came back and asked to have their Stretch 30 lure back. I said sure.



At that same time he held his hands out as if he were going to catch the lure. DA! :banghead



I told him to get out of the way and I'd throw it on the boat, which he did. Then they left the area.





It's a freaking Stretch 30....It has large treble hooks sticking out everywhere! :banghead

I have run over one or two all unintentinal:banghead. Sometimes mostly in the pass you just aren't looking for them or the pole thats trolling can't be seen bent over because of the angle of approach. No one wants to have a ton of mono wrapped around the seals in there lower unit.:doh

You know, nowadays it just seems that there is less "common courtesy" and more "it's all about me" goin' on. I have been dragging lines out of destin before and had charter boats and pleasure boats, large and small,running on a direct course line to some unknown destination and not even waiver from their track or speed (like they are entitled to that line)and run right off my stern and cut off all of my lines. Insome of these incidents if I had not dropped throttle or turned and parralled their course there would have been a collision. Arrogant azzholes!!!Whenever I am approaching, overtaking,arriving at a waypoint, or crossing the path of another boat, fishing or not...even if I am trolling....I always extend some common courtesy and pay attention to what the other boat is intending to do, or is doing. I mean how hard is it toalter your course for a few moments and then get back on track? After all, it is every boaters responibility to ALWAYSpay attention to their surroundings. If more boaters/fisherman would practice a little more "situational awareness", both sports would be so much more safe and fun!

BloodyWaters (12/10/2009)Jet skiers! all the time. hate those things!:banghead
Well jet skiers aren't that bad, if they run your line over because of jet unit. They do tend to get too close, they do the

old " Look at me I'm on a jetski!" pass. They thing that pisses me off the most is when you got people crowding

landlocked anglers in thier boats.

Thats a sure sign of "I don't know what the hell I'm doing".

One time years ago I was shark fishing of Pcola beach and had a fishing boat hauling arse inside the sand bars. We yelled

and flashed lights at him. No use stripped almost all of the 80 lb. dacron off my 9/0 before I could cut the line. All I could

hope for was that the lined fouled up his prop bad enought to break the seal in his lower unit and get some saltwater in it.
