From what I remember, a long time ago, "fishing" in the regs basicaly meant larger vessels with "gear" in the water, like drag boats (trawlers), long line boats, seiners, trollers and the like, all being used to generate revenue.

I doubt the person in their sports fishing boat with maybe 4 lines out falls into the "fishing" catagory? Jackdale?
