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.

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.

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.
