No.....like a good father I would get of my board cast out, go surf, repeat. Like any good father who does not think of himself. As for hating a 4 year old, I should probably post a poll on here and see what swell info world thinks of that. 1,000 waves interesting?
Casting hooks into water where folks are swimming or surfing is a bit lame. I never felt comfortable in that situation. I will say that here in Galveston, when folks fish off the jetties, they fish on the side opposite of the surfers, regardless of which side that happens to be that given day. If they're wade or beach fishing, it's only on flat days.
When I was a kid in Cape Canaveral, Fl, we'd only surf fish AT NIGHT. Only after the water was empty. It's just f-in strange to be comfortable fishing in a crowd a people.
Paulie knows what's up, glad to see someone with some sense.
