    My study is over many years of dealing with redneck scum throwing their hooks of death at any place they feel like. Even if there are swimmers, kids, kooks, and us surfers around. I have asked these self absorbed people over 50 different times to be cautious of swimmers only to be meet with arrogant its all about me responses. My conclusion is that 90% of these people are as stupid as they look. Fight back in a subtle manner remember they usually have knifes in their quiver. Unite surf world.

    what the heck is this bro talking about???

    This is the first post I have ever felt the need to comment on in a long time. Surfing is just one of the many ways to immerse yourself into the shoreman/waterman's culture. If you grew up on the water like I have, then you would probably agree that recreational fishing is an excellent way to showcase your knowledge of the ocean, and your mastery of it's tides etc. So I would think twice before calling on the surf community to unite against fisherman- you missed that fact that 90% of avid surfers fish their butts off....

    Not to mention that a lack of complete sentences and poor grammar make it difficult to take the stereotypical "redneck" assertion seriously without coming to conclusions about the poster.

    Besides, it's not as though they are chumming the water you're in, right? Until you get "Ben Stiller-ed", take it easy.

    I agree with most of you to an extent. If people are enjoying the water (surfing, swimming, etc.) and someone comes along and throws a hook in, I'd be PISSED. If the fisherman was there first, all the power to him, but reasonable and walk your arse down the jetty and fish there.

    September/ october and the oceans flat? youve got some great shorefishing for stripped bass that time of year. I'd suggest getting into it, I never really fished until I was about 21, now its one of my favorite hobbies

    Surf fisherman are ignorant douchebags and the eastcoast is full of redneck white trash surfers. I would rather go to jersey with the Agro city slicker shredders. Fight back against fishermen!! 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.

    All comes down to common sense and respect for other people. If I pull up and someone's got a lines in the water, then he's entitled to that space IMO. If he comes up, walks down in front of us, and casts out right where all our kids are, there's going to be a problem. Decent people that respect others wont' do that, and also won't leave their hooks, knives, and anything else lying in the sand when they leave. Every time we camp on the beach the next morning I gather the kids and we go 100yds in all directions cleaning up others trash, and it's not just the fisherman or their hooks and knives. Idiots leave their firewood too, which makes great water logged missiles when they get sucked into the surf. The clean cut, all-american and apple pie clowns with their Indiana U shirts that camped near us last time weren't fishing but left plenty of huge logs to get washed away...and come back. Personally I'd rather get a hook in me than take one of those in the face duck diving a wave.

    IMO, most people are either idiots or just don't give a f about anyone else, or both. I don't see redneck fisherman as having a monopoly on that. Plenty of ahole surfers out there too...

    Fishing is fun. Surf fishing is the most challenging way to hook into something. I surf fish all the time, and I'm respectful of others, so are 90% of the other guys. If you ever hooked into a fish of consequence on the beach and listened to your drag scream, you'd know what I'm talking about. I suggest learning to fish because it's flat in NJ 75% of the time, easily.

    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.

    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.
