    The only difference is surf fisherman can hurt swimmers, skimmers, fish, and surfers but none of them can hurt surf fishermen. Those pole heads have a monopoly on dishing out their bull****. Surf fishermen are all fair weather beach goers just like all the tourists. You will never see people surf fishing in the winter. i feel the same way about them as i do all the fair weather surfers this world has to offer.

    Can't hurt surf fishermen? Why not? Some jackass walks up to where you're surfing and fires a hook and weight at your head and there's nothing you can do about it? If he's too big to handle, go get some help.

    Surf fisherman are all fair weather beach goers? Uh yeah, right. That's why after labor day you see all the fisherman leave and there's nothing left but surfers right? Gee I seem to recall that's when most of them come out.

    Never see people fish in winter? Gimme a break. And on days when no one's fishing it couldn't possibly be because nothing's biting, could it? No chance they could be in the sound killing it on some stripers but nothing's running in the surf?

    I guess you're not a fair weather surfer huh? You must be soooo hardcore. Do you fly your banner proudly when you're out at your home break so all can know you are The Man? There's a guy on here that sells them, specially made for surfers.

    First of all, I am not gay. Honestly, the best shore fishing and surf generally lies along river mouths, piers (fishing), etc... so more ofter than not the fisherman (not gay) has the same argument as you. So nect time you decide to call me gay think twice sexy.

    Down here in the durty souff, redneck idiot fishermen and old fart LL Bean douchebags have a bad habit of casting pyramid rigged lines in close proximity to surfers and swimmers who were in the water before they got there. And when you stink eye them they ignore you, and when you say something they get pissy. We have a sort of truce at the piers and jettys for the most part, but along some of the more secluded stretches of beaches and at the preserve, they are total di(ks, especially because there is so much open beach to avoid each other.

    I fish too, and my buddies paddle bait out past the sandbar and catch sharks (after we are done surfing). But these cowboys that Wacky Kooky refers to are totally clueless mouthbreathers who have less common sense than a road lizard. It makes me want to surf with a pole spear.

    How to deal with ahole fisherman...

    1) Put down your board, shovel, machete, anything that can be seen as threatening, approach them calmly, and politely ask them not to cast their rig into that group of kids swimming out there.
    2) If they refuse, just say "Ok if that's your choice", walk away, pick up the machete, and cut their line.
    3) If they protest, introduce them to Mr Shovel. Mr Shovel is wonderful for settling disagreements. My lawyer says cops won't prosecute if you hit an ahole fisherman with a shovel, as long as you asked him nicely not to do that beforehand.

    WackyKook, I understand where you're coming from. No one likes that BS either. Deal with it on an individual basis. Coming on here and asking for some vague crusade of surfers vs surf fisherman accomplishes nothing.

    If you think that surf fishermen are robbing the ocean of fish you're an idiot. They take less fish out than any other type of fishermen.
    I fish almost everyday during the season (from my boat 99% of the time) . I only keep fish when I'm going to eat it. Most do the same. Fishermen are more conscious of sustaining the fish #'s than anyone else.
    Are their guys that kill everything they catch, yes. But that a very small percentage.
    I've watched the striped bass population sky rocket since I was a kid. And that's what surf fishermen are targeting most of the time.

There all self absorbed and robbing the ocean of what little fish it has left. Then letting them go bad in the freezer or chopping them up for bait. That's real appreciation of the TRUE watermans journey to the ocean.

    And you don't see them in the winter because the bass are gone (for the most part).
    The season closes 12/15.

    you need to consult lawyers outside of West Virginia, just to be safe.

    Hmm, good point Lee. Better to be safe than sorry. But my lawyer sits in a big fat corner office in a high rise in downtown Raleigh. I assume he's versed in NC law, and not like he'd lie to me. Lawyers always tell the truth, its in their oath.
