    So I'm fishing in my float tube in SD bay this morning. Out in front of Navy housing cove near that island. I've been fishing there since sun up about 4 hours. I'm fully aware that the navy is watching everything I do. I don't care, I've got nothing to hide.

    There's 3 jet skis that periodically terrorize me and the cove, then one dude gets off on the island(nature reserve) and hes peeing and drinking and making videos of himself, his buddies show up and they're raising hell and making vids.

    Sure enough, the MPs show up in a naval guard boat and kick everybody out of the area. Including me. I know the bay game well, when the MPs say leave, you leave. I said, OK and started kicking they followed me and told me to leave again. I said, "I'm leaving as fast as I can." They said thank you, and continued to follow me.

    Some upper brass dude in a tower with binoculars is watching and getting pissed because I'm moving too slow and I'm still throwing lures. None of theses people knows what a float tube. They thinks its a kayak. They think I can be gone immediately. He thinks I'm blowing off the guards.

    I eventually make it to shore and hike back about 1/4 mile to my car. There's some MPs hanging out. Again, I don't care, cause I' haven't done anything wrong. She watches me load my gear and start to drive away and I see she is walking toward me so I stop. Suddenly more MPs roll in, I'm thrown up against my car and handcuffed.

    I was told that the big navy cheese up in the tower is pissed because I continued to fish (in my kayak) after being ordered to leave. I was informed by the MPs, who were actually kinda cool, that he was the one determined to give me a ticket. Problem is, they had nothing to give me a ticket for.

    He tried trespassing on military base, Nope not even close. He tried trespassing where I enter the bay, cops went down and took a video of where I entered the bay and said, Nope there is no fence, so there's no trespassing. He said, "get him on a fishing violation" nope I didn't break any laws. He said,, "get him for fishing near the nature reserve. The MP called fish and game and F&G said, Nope. They even had Coronado police give me the third degree, but they didn't have anything on me either. They looked in my car, Nope.

    2 hours later they took the cuffs off and let me go. The angry dude in charged made the MPs give me a trespassing ticket anyway, but all 3 cops told me it would be thrown out in court.

    Good times

    Sounds like the typical, to me... There are reasons I fish where I fish... Glad the ticket will get tossed though

    Around the island in the image below? Where did you launch from? I thought the area around there was all fenced off. If they really don't want people there then they should mark it with lots of signed buoys.The Navy does have legally recognized security zones but if they don't mark them, then I don't think they have a case against you.
