Up current where no one else can fish???? You can freeline and snobble upcurrent just fine. Thats the way its done everywhere else on the area piers. What you usually had at the old pier was two or three trolleys tying up half the octagon and everyone else shoulder to shoulder on the down wind side. I guess its an ok way to fish up on the east coast piers where they have a good week if they catch one king, but here it just doesnt make good sense.

You never saw many try fishing upwind at old GSP because the upwind side was reserved for trolleys only,even if there was only 1 person with a trolley. As for as baits winding up in the pylons, you have to tend your line no matter where you fish on the pier. I couldnt be happier to see the trolleys gone and I think most who fish the piers regularly would agree.

alot of people freelined and snobbled when it was not against the rules, the rule was changed to accomadate the trolly fishers, not to help the others. if in the future they allow trollies what i do hope is they do not isolate any type of fishing,let everone try to coexist. but to answer the question, no i am not unhappy, and if anyone wants to protest the new rule, i think they should take a stand and stay at home. that will show'em.
