anyone else tired of sitting in the line up and turning around only to see some kook ''fisherman" casting out right next to you? happened almost every session out here on long island. its funny too because where I surf, there is a 6 foot channel then 20 feet out turns into a long ankle deep (sometimes dry) sand bar, yet people still cast out there . I surf 4-5 times a week for many hours and haven't seen a single thing get caught. I try and tell them to move or leave because I don't wanna get hooked but it never works.anyone got any ideas on how to deal with this?

I agree with metard, this is the only option.

I surf that beach all the time and I surf just as much, 3-5 times a week. Never had a problem. Ever. Actually saw a guy catch s pretty big fish today. I believe he said it was a 19 pound fish. We talked before casting/paddling out and we were both in the same general area but stayed out of each others way. Mutual respect. If the fisherman has no respect, paddle down the beach a bit. There's plenty of waves

Coexist: it's a crowded planet & it's not getting less so anytime soon.
I've found the surf fishermen guys to be totally cool with surfers. They even tell me sometimes where they're dropping hook so I don't get snagged.
Pier fishermen, on the other hand, I dunno about that lot. I've surfed VB & those fukkers on the 15th St pier throw weights & debris at surfers who the fisherpeople think stray too close to the pier.
