I think that's the problem in a nutshell. It's turning into a Hooray for me the hell with you society. A lot of people want instant gratification. They don't want to put the time in to learn and pay there due's. Sad.

True that. It took me 4 years to get my first keeper and I worked pretty hard and did a lot of research (my teacher Johns skinner).

Never fished from the beach but growing up I was always warned to watch for lobster pots in the boat because lobstermen will mess you up if you mess with their catch. Guess it happens on the water AND the beach...

The threat of violence in Surfcasting has been around at least the 55 years I’ve been doing it. But it’s what kept the code clear to everyone, spots weren’t burnt, lines weren’t cast over your neck, you had to learn the rules, and show some respect. 

When I first started bucktailing a certain east end inlet there were a core group of older guys who ran the show, you had to put in the time , show some respect and know what the f you were doing before you got a shot at the better rocks and the rip. It made for an organized situation with as many as 10 guys fishing in rotation when the bite was on. Interlopers with an attitude got ONE chance to back off, if not they were ejected. Most of them are gone and certainly rolling over in their graves at what a s hit show it's become.

Seriously, I don't think I've had anything really happen in 20 years of fishing. Maybe I need to fish the canal more.

Let me know when you're going so I can come and kick you down the rocks. Then you'll have a story. 

 

 

Don't forget your knee pads.

I don't find it any worse than its been in the last, say decade, to be honest...there have always been jackwagons...what I do find is people whine on the internet incessantly these days.

I pull up close to shore and toss right where you esnes are fishing as often as I can.  I understand the canal is considering opening fishing from boats soon too.  Can't wait!
