I've caught more fish off my boat than most sportsfisherman have ever dreamed of. The biggest problem is hooking a marlin while under sail.. You're doing 5kts, the fish is going out at 20kts in the other direction, drop the sail, double set the hook and try just to hold on til the boat slows. If you have crew, they can make a turn into the direction of the fish and you can gain a lot of slack line, til he realizes he's hooked.

To answer your question, The only people who cares how it looks is the guy that spent $800 in fuel to get where you are, and hasn't caught anything.

Just checking in.
Where ya'll keep'n the wimmin 'round here?

Whether you need a license or not really depends on where you are fishing. If you're fishing 12 miles out or more, you're in international waters...and don't require a license. Some states, like Massachusetts, don't require a recreational saltwater license.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Oh no, you don't touch it yourself do you? Oh dear, you must hire someone at once. "Lovey, bring me my pipe"
