Fishing on a sailboat is a tradition that has lasted for thousands of years. I think that it should continue. While it would look better to fish off a Grady or Cabo Rico, fishing off a boat looks good, and improves morale!

Looks bad to who?!! People on other boats? People on shore? The fish? Does it really matter?

The only time it looks funny is when you hook up and the fish pulls you backwards

No, it doesn't look bad. And besides, when Edgar Cayce's prediction of the polar shift comes true, we will all be fishing for food off the stern while the landlubbers sit on top of their roofs waiting for rescue.

Great men always have too much sail up. - Christopher Buckley

I see a lot of walleye fishermen in my area. There are a couple of things I've observed.

1.) They often wear camoflauge clothing.

2.) They always bring beer.

I've fished off my boat but since I didn't do either, I probably looked bad.

Those grand fresh-water seas of ours - Erie, and Ontario, and Huron, and Superior, and Michigan, - possess an ocean-like expansiveness...They contain round archipelagoes of romantic isles...they have heard the fleet thunderings of naval victories...they know what shipwrecks are, for out of sight of land, however inland, they have drowned full many a midnight ship with all its shrieking crew. --from Moby Dick

You got to be careful around those guys, they often use dynamite to fish.

If I had to rely on my angling skills, we'd all starve.

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Some people are like slinkies: not really good for anything... but you can't help laughing when you push them down the stairs
