Re: You are NOT "FISHING"
Back when I was studying for my license one of my instructors said that although he couldn't pin them down on it, there were indications from the USCG that a trolling vessel could be considered a fishing vessel if it had a fish on.
That sort of even makes sense.
I remember being hailed off St. Augustine inlet one afternoon by a sportfisher who requested that I give him a lot of room because his angler was fighting a large fish and he was maneuvering to keep the best angle/boatspeed on the fish. Happy to oblige, Cap.
