Re: You are NOT "FISHING"
I've always been told that the local yokel trolling a couple lines from his bass boat or Boston Whaler clearly isn't fishing under the COLREGs.
But reading this, it appears to me that the boat's maneuverability would be restricted due to his lines in the water, so he should be the stand on vessel.
actually it seems as though D would appear to directly address that as in, boat trolling with lines is not considered fishing.
