    Agreed! Another whiny non-waterman "surfer". Learn to fish, dive, boat,and swim in the ocean. Then you might have a clue what the fishermen are doing. Too many clowns trying to pole vault (airs) the waves instead of ride and understand. Guys got buuolz telling a fisherman to move! You move!

    I wish I was making this up, at the Rodanthe pier once a guy had been yelling down at me from the pier for about an hour and I just pretended not to hear him. When I got out of the water he came down to the beach and pulled a fillet knife on me. NC baby.

  3. 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.

    The pier guys here in Ocean City used to do the same thing. Then in 1992 they pumped the beach with sand and left them pretty much high and dry. Been laughing at them ever since. Imagine the Rodanthe Pier with only the last 30 feet with water under it and you'll have the general idea.

    I fish and surf. I think it is the whoever is there first rule. If I see a fisherman (especially benny looking summer tourist), I avoid that spot. Now, if I'm first at a spot and some ahole fisherman comes later and casts near me. I'm definitely getting out of the water to talk to him. I've been hooked too many times by fishermen who have no clue what they are doing and don't even know what tides work.

    Oh, yeah. All those surfcasters are just awesome watermen, with the utmost respect for surfers, swimmers, the beach and the ocean. You'd never, for instance, encounter a surf fisherman who would, say, cast his hook right at your ****in' face while you're out surfing, then wave his arms and yell "HOOK, HOOK" at you and expect you to vacate the break. No, of course not.

    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.
