Default RE: people run over lines

I went fishing with a guy once, just me and him, he was driving and I was fishing. It was a small boat was no more than 20'. He ran over my line three times while I was bottom fishing.:doh WTF!!! I managed to avoid the prop several other times but he got me three times. We were fishing in less than 100' and it cost me about 100 yards of line all told. He had to raise the motor twice while I unwrapped his lower unit. The scary thing was he wasn't trying to do it, he was just completely oblivious LOL.

i'm sure everybody know's this but just in case,lower unit seals and fishing line don't mix. if you ever think you may have hit a line be sure to pull the prop and look. i have a friend who got line in his prop, stored the boat for the winter and the first trip of the next season, well the motor won't go in gear. lower unit full of saltwater all winter long. had to buy complete lower unit. 250 suzuki= kinda expensive. only takes a minute to pull the prop and look. like i said , most people already know this but maybe it will help someone out. on the other hand, if your doing something stupid or disrespectful then i hope it does cost you some money.
