I think the OP would be surprised to find that many of the best surf fishermen around are or were surfers. Particularly the guys you see in the fall.

I usually never have a problem with them, but I know what you're talking about. Only one time have I ever gotten hooked and it was by an idiot who was standing right next to the pier, rather than paying $5 or w/e to get on it and fish like a normal person. But he must of been broke and couldn't afford it, or just figured it didn't matter.
When you have a group of surfers right there, why post up and start casting right into the crowd? It makes no sense. Now if the fisherman was there first, then the surfers should just suck it up and move down a little bit to avoid getting in HIS way, as it's first come first serve. But we were first on it, so he should have known better.
The guy that hooked me got off easy because it only caught my leash and not my skin. Had it of actually hurt me I would have had to of sent him home with a black eye, but instead I just unhooked it from my leash and yelled at him to move down the beach away from the crowd, which he ignored. But haven't seen him again since, so he's probably a summertime pro fisherman.

I have several nice lures if store bought $10-$25 each that catch me fish all the time. They casted over me so i grabbed the line bit it and kept the lure. back in the mid 90's i had a fist fight over a lure i bit off. It still catches fish to this day. Im just saying if the fisherman is an ass and casts at you make your own karma. Hell fishing stuff isn't cheap and I love fishing and free stuff, cast at me all you want.
