Only if you don't catch anything.

Do you mean will people think "is that boat with the tall stick and the fishing pole out the back a sailboat or a fishing boat?" Who cares?

This poll is running on two catagories here!?
Was it necessary to post in two different catagories?
Are you fishing for compliments? Comments? New forms of cussing?

Tenuki,

It would help if you had a fishing pole on the top of your cabin! Any interest in being a crew for some of the ECYC racers for the summer series on wed eve? I'll have my boat back about June 25 for the july races. Some other folks might want a person or two or three.

Who cares how it looks. I have often run a handline while sailing...I use a clarkspoon and a planer. Even though the planer creates a drag, it pops up automatically when you have a fish.

Someone pointed out to me recently that I was supposed to have a fishing license for that, which I have never bothered with. I guess I shouldn't admit that on a public forum, but they would have to prove that I have caught fish.

You might be careful. Not only do you need a fishing license, but in some states it is illegal to troll while under sail. (Guess they think its unfair to the fish or something???)
