i dove in the madness opening weekend on a couple wrecks near the liberty ship. nobody fishing near us seemed to have any problems catching fish before we got in the water. we left my buddy's girlfriend on the boat to bubble watch. i told her to pay attention to all the fishermen while we were down because they like to accuse of us killing the bite. she said they continued to catch fish the entire time we were down there.
i could see a couple of lines while i was there (and the fish picking them clean). someone was using some braid that was easily visible. the mono was more difficult to see until i was right on top of it (no big deal - just swim around it), and some of it i didn't see at all. on our ascent, my dive buddy pulled a hook out of my regulator hoses!
i've been on trips where our one bubble watcher put more fish in the boat than 3 divers!
there are some a-holes out there but another thing to consider is that we typically do not have the flexibility in locations that the rod and reel guys have. yall can drop lines on anything. we can't necessarily just pick from any spot out there. a lot of us dive nitrox which, to summarize, means the mix of air in our tank becomes toxic beyond its maximum operating depth. as many have already said, i don't want to swim where you're fishing...most wrecks are plenty big for all of us...and if not then i will move on whenever possible.
