Everytime I'm at the pier, there are rods leaningalong the rail....That really doesn't bother me till I decide to fish there, then someone(pier regular)comes and tells me thats there spot....of coarse that doesn't work (how can it be your spot when I'm standing there?)

What really pisses me off the most.....in the heat of battle with a nice fish(cobe,king)these rods don't move by there owners, sometimes the one in battle has to try and step over them when fighting the fish,or are moved by other good people,helping in the task of landing a fish.

I will lean my rod along the rail, but I will be standing by it, I have watched for a few minutes before I go and fish a spot with a rod leaning... just incase someone went to there cooler for something to drink or bait(what ever)

It seems the whole end is this way.I keep my rods in the holder of the pier cart when not in use....When a fish is seen those spots fill up quick and your rod doesn't save a thing!!!

Don't ask me to move!!! stay in your spot if you want it....or just move down alittle

if you would not like to deal with any of this fighting a fish, then don't do it yourself, and if rods along the rail save a spot..... I will bring all of mine and have to whole end to myself.....atleast the east side around the corner( I would look like the guy on the tvcommercial fishing for everything)

I'm not trying to start a big thread here, or pissing match.....just have some common courtesy with your fellow angler(googan too!!!!ME)...I will be the one with the zebco 33, or snoopy rod...:doh

Why all the rods? Because you have to be prepared on the pier..I keep my ling rod and pompano rod close and the rest in my cart or on the rail on west side...

i normally have my main rod (in the spring, cobia rod, and in the summer, king rod) with me for my target species, and then 1 other rod, for whatever other species may pop up(pomp rod, king rod, tarpon rod) ... i always have 2 rods with me, within grabbing distance....

if i walk away and expect to be gone for more than a minute or two, i'll set them on the back rail... and normally if someone walks off for more than 5 minutes, i just move their stuff to the back rail, it's not courteous(and pretty stupid if it's ling season and you leave your rod!)

there is a buttload of clutter out there though, i don't mind steppeng over rods, but i hate stepping over coolers and walking around pier carts!

Well if your right....I'll just hang around the pool and get some sleep.....I'm not trying to start any crap!!!!I am very respectful of others at the pier and have never had a problem when I'm there.....catching fish is just a plus to my vacation, I love the pier atmosphere(good or bad) it is very relaxing to me....just looking out in the ocean.Taking fish home, just is a plus....some years I've had a cooler full others only a baggy full.

I really like the people!!!! locals or not......fellow fisher people(to staygenderly correct)

Just a word of advice, keep an eye on your rods on the back rail, in your cart, etc. Some little thievin' [email protected]@rd ripped off a nice 7' spanish rod from me while I was down there a few weeks ago.From what Iwas told, there were 4 rods stolen that week. 99.9% of the people that frequent the pier are great people but there's at least 1 out there that can't be trusted. I had a great time, saw alot of old friends and met alot of new ones,and caught my share of fish too. Just keep your eyes open.

I can hardly wait til next time.

To sum it up in three words....LACK OF CONSIDERATION.:banghead:banghead:banghead

Be glad you don't have the fishing rules that they have in Colorado......2 rods maximum, and that extra rod cost an additional $5.00 a year.

Pier fishing used to be fun and enjoyable, I usually bring 3 rods out 1 rigged for cig minnow for king or ? (or live bait) one purely for catching bait and one as a backup (those 2 sitting on the island rack). This pier is not owned by the few but paid by those who pay to come on (all experience levels). What urks me is when your fishing lets say for king with a live minnow and have some kid just out of diapers run into you throwing his line over your face and bumping into you and then his friends doing the same....oops cobia. darn. I try to get my 1 line out as fast as I can but that does not excuse inmaturity and rudeness. Yes there is a fish coming, yes I may have been in that spot, yes I can move but who do they think they are that they can run into others like they don't belong there or worse yet curse at them or cut their line. I had one guy old enough to know better use his cigarette to burn the line and say oops my line should not have been "out" there, like I was stupid.

Bottom line, you have people from all over the US coming down here to Pensacola to enjoy the sun and try out the pier and walk away with a feel for "hey they have some nice people down there", not ....$()&*#$(^[email protected]# I'll never go down there again,...those punks were lucky I didn't $)($*#$+.. I love fishing and most of the fishing folks are great and would give you the shirt off their backs, but some of the kids that should still be in school or just out of school should take their step stools back and a few dozen rods back and think about others and when a cobia comes around ...fine go for it but watch others.....it's their pier also....you do not own the right to knock them out of the way period.jak CATCH FISH, ENJOY LIFE, TREAT OTHERS RIGHT, IF YOU CAN'T STAY HOME.

No but I've done quite a bit there in PNS before I got on this forum, during my 28 years in Miami, and 4 years in Brunswick, GA. And during those times I didn't have any problems either.:moon

So I know I have more time pier fishing then you do.
