    What are you catching? What is the biggest? What bait? What weight? Why here? I don't fish myself, Why the long rod? I want to see a fish caught. Is that one, as kelp or waves pulls the line?

    I love the IV since none of that.

    This is why I fish at night.... only people asking any questions at all about the fishing are other fishermen.

    Most common (of course on days that I don't catch anything) is "what do you catch here?" - haven't had much more than that - maybe once or twice asking about bait. The questions are usually quick so I don't mind.
    What bugs me more is when a kid, or adult, decides to enter the water 10' feet next to me, continue walking in and not realizing they are walking at an angle and getting close to my line. Did they not see a 6'2" man standing there??

    Normally I do the same but life sometimes dictates otherwise. Boneheads walking into the line are another class unto themselves.

    Life (and by this I mean my wife lol) demands that all fishing take place at night. Which works for me. Anti-social as I tend to be, less people to talk to the better lol.


    And only time I ever had that issue at all was a paddleboarder at NTC. Lucky for them when they fell they fell towards the channel lol

    the other morning i was shorefishing the west side of Santa Clara cove. Nobody in the water in the cove,nobody else fishing....the only other person i could see was a guy on a paddleboard coming south along the same shoreline i was fishing. He's coming towards me,moving south so i looked at him, looked back at my rod then look at him again still coming south. There wasnt anyone else in the bay...he keeps coming. Finally i reel up and he passes not ten feet from me,smiles and says "hows it going". Big smile on his face. There wasn't ANY reason that moron couldn't have gone around me. Dude passed about ten feet from me.

    After someone asked if I caught anything, said that I caught a leopard but let it get, her response was "Good!" - I was about to explain that I didn't have choice since it was less than 3' - but I figured that would have caused all sorts of problems and decided not to explain. Next time I'll say nothing caught unless it is another fisherman.

    I was surf fishing one time on an empty beach and there was one family left playing in the sand a few hundred feet away. The kids got curious and came up to me and started playing in the water in front of me. I tried to move away but there was a rip current that kept my bait in that area so I stayed close by to monitor it. Then a lifeguard comes up to me and says that I have to move 100yrds away from the swimmers even though I told him that I was there first. I asked him if that was a law and he said yes. Can anyone verify this law?

    I don't get this reasoning. We pay to fish on the beach - everyone else is free to do what they want - but somehow we are the ones in the way.

    I'm mostly standing in the surf when fishing, so I don't have to worry about having to talk to people. I also don't mind all the extra skin on display, so I'm happy the warmer tourist season is here.

    I feel it's a great opportunity to educate people on our local wildlife and promote the sport of fishing.

    Can be for the curious people who have the decency to wait until I am settled be for asking anything. This individual last night would not stop asking crap as I put down my stuff, rigged, tried to read the water, bait up, cast and set the rod in the holder. The whole time blah blah blah............

    :emoji_rage::emoji_middle_finger::emoji_face_palm:

    That isn't being curious that is interfering with my fishing.

    Any time there are kids around that aren't being annoying little snots I'll show them a fish for a few seconds while I unhook it, answer a couple questions about it, and show them the release.
